WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it is a mild morning with wake-up temperatures mostly in the 40s. Later today as the clouds break apart, temperatures will top-out in the lower 80s, or twenty degrees above average. However, Wichita would have to hit 92 today to tie the record high from 1907.

Cooler conditions come back to Kansas tomorrow with highs in the near normal upper 50s and lower 60s. Less wind and partial sunshine will make it an enjoyable day before two more disturbances sweep across the state on Friday and Sunday.

Expect mostly rain on Friday, but areas along and west of a Pratt to Russell line may see some snow mix in at times. Overall, rainfall amounts will be light, less than a quarter of an inch, and no snow accumulation is expected.

While the Wichita area will be wet on Sunday, there is a better chance of snow for western Kansas. Once again, precipitation is expected to stay on the light side, but some small snow accumulation cannot be ruled out.
