WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says sunshine returns to the state today and so do milder afternoon temperatures in the upper 40s, or a few degrees above normal.

Even warmer weather moves in this weekend. Highs in the lower 60s on Saturday will be accompanied by sunshine and a relatively light breeze. Conditions will be similar on Sunday and Monday before big changes move in during the middle of next week.

A strong winter storm looks likely late Tuesday through Wednesday. While this storm system will have a lot of moisture to work with, the eventual path of the storm is uncertain at this time. A farther south path means more mixed precipitation and snow while a farther north path would mean more rain changing to freezing rain and sleet.

We will have a better understanding on how things evolve over the weekend when the storm moves inland from the Pacific Ocean. Stay with us for additional updates.
