Wind-blown warm-up Thursday

By  | 

Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it’s another clear start to the day, but it’s not quite as cold as Wednesday morning. Wake-up temperatures in the 40s will climb into the 70s and 80s this afternoon under mainly sunny skies.

The break from the breeze on Wednesday was nice, but it’s also over. A strong south breeze between 15 and 25 mph (with higher gusts) today will turn even stronger tomorrow.

The first of two cold fronts to move through the region should do so on Friday night. Scattered showers/storms are possible with its passage followed by a slight cool-down on Saturday. The second, stronger front arrives on Sunday with another round of rain and thunder, mainly in far eastern Kansas.
