WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Afternoon temperatures will be climbing over the next few days and should be back to near normal by Saturday afternoon. Strongest winds will be across central and southwest Kansas with gusts likely topping 25 mph.

It’s still going to be rather cold Friday afternoon with highs barely getting above freezing in some places. More clouds are on the way Friday afternoon, especially in western Kansas. A sprinkle or some flurries will be possible Friday evening in far western Kansas, but it is not likely to impact road conditions at all.

More sunshine returns to the area on Saturday. The winds will die down and highs will reach the mid to upper 40s. Another bump in temperatures comes up on Sunday when highs reach the mid and upper 50s.

Another cold front comes in early next week. Monday will have temperatures in the 40s and 50s, but with increasing north winds, look for much colder air on Tuesday. Some snow remains possible in western Kansas.
