WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Peyton Sanders says that it will be breezy and warmer Sunday with high fire danger for parts of Kansas.

It will be a cool start to the day Sunday with morning low temperatures in the mid 30s to lower 40s. Afternoon highs will reach the low to mid 70s for most of the state. South winds will gust over 30 mph during the afternoon.

High fire danger is expected across western and into portions of central Kansas with the gusty winds, warm temperatures, and low relative humidity.

A cold front will move through the state Sunday night, bringing slightly cooler weather on Monday. Temperatures will still remain mild with highs in the 60s.
