Another cold front tonight sends temperatures tumbling on Friday
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it is a dry, but breezy and colder morning across Kansas. Wake-up temperatures in the 20s and 30s feel like the teens and 20s compliments of a northwest wind between 10-20 mph.
Under a mostly sunny sky, temperatures will eventually climb into the near normal middle to upper 50s this afternoon. However, the gusty northwest breeze will keep it feeling a bit cooler.
The third, and final cold front of the work week will sweep through the state tonight. A few flurries/sprinkles are possible, but the bigger weather story will be a strong/gusty wind and much colder temperatures. Highs in the 40s on Friday will feel even cooler as the gusty northwest wind continues.
A hard freeze looks likely Friday night into Saturday morning as temperatures tumble into the middle 20s, but the rest of the weekend looks mild and relatively quiet.
