Chilly mornings, mild afternoons this weekend
Fall weather sticks around
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Temperatures in the 30s, even a few 20s across Kansas this morning. Eisenhower Airport reported a morning low of 37, however other observations around Sedgwick County indicated temperatures dropped between 33 and 37 degrees. Outside of Sedgwick County temperatures were even colder with lows in the upper 20s and low 30s across central Kansas. Parts of western Kansas had between 3-10 hours of temperatures below freezing too.
After a cold start temperatures are expected to warm into the 60s by Noon and upper 60s and low 70s through the afternoon. Sunshine and light wind speeds are expected, making it feel-like a perfect fall day across Kansas. Almost a carbon copy tomorrow with slightly warmer temperatures. Morning lows on Sunday in the 30s and low 40s with afternoon highs in the mid 70s.
South winds increase on Monday and Tuesday ahead of our next cold front, meaning warmer temperatures both days. Highs will reach the 70s and low 80s through Tuesday. The cold front on Tuesday will push through Kansas during the afternoon and overnight and a few sprinkles are possible- mainly across parts of central and southeast Kansas during the evening and overnight. Dry and cooler weather will follow- Wednesday through the end of the week, with highs in the 60s. Low 70s return to the forecast next weekend. No measurable rainfall is expected over the next 7 days.
