WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - High clouds and peeks of sunshine on our Saturday, along with warmer temperatures statewide. The weather problem today will be the gusty south wind. Gusts 30-45 mph will be common through the afternoon across southern and central Kansas. Wind Advisory has been posted for parts of central Kansas for the afternoon and evening hours. Expect high temperatures in the 40s and 50s this afternoon.

Less wind in the forecast tonight and Sunday as high pressure builds into Kansas. Winds should begin to diminish after 9pm. Clearing skies and cold tonight with lows in the 20s and low 30s. After a cold start to Sunday morning, the combination of less wind and more sunshine will make it feel a lot like Spring. Highs will be in the 50s and low 60s. The mild “spring-like” weather will continue through mid-week with highs in the 60s. A weather system on Wednesday will plow through Kansas, knocking us back to February reality.
