WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says in the wake of last night’s rain and snow, it is a dry but breezy and colder Thursday morning. Wake-up temperatures in the teens and 20s will climb into the 40s this afternoon, but wind gusts between 30-40 mph will keep it feeling much colder.

Another fast-moving system will sweep through the state tonight with scattered snow showers. The best chance of seeing a dusting of snow will occur over south-central and southeast Kansas, but travel troubles are not expected.

Friday will be sunny but continued colder than normal with highs in the lower 40s. However, warmer weather returns this weekend as temperatures top-out in the lower 50s on Saturday, and upper 50s on Sunday.

Looking ahead… A stronger storm system with heavier rain may move through the area on Monday night into Valentine’s Day. While the path and strength remain uncertain, a soaking rainfall is a safe bet in the Wichita area. A second storm system is possible later next week, but precipitation type and amounts are uncertain.
