It has been a dark and dank day across Kansas. The drizzle has been persistent here in Wichita with leftover showers in the northern half of the state.
This system will slowly but surely lift away from our region tonight. Clouds will be stubborn to break up. There will be a few starry spots out west where temps could fall into the upper 30s by dawn on Friday.
While there will still be a good deal of cloud cover on Friday, temps will be able to warm into the 60s and 70s.
Winds will also be gustier, so hang on to your hat!
Saturday will be one of the “Top 10” days of fall. Temps will be in the 70s. I could see some spots in the southwest part of our viewing area touching the 80s. Winds will be light until evening.
Sunday we cool to the 60s and stay there through much of next week.
For days, we’ve been tracking unsettled weather for the middle of next week. Latest model guidance suggests the system will move through faster, potentially shutting off the faucet just in time for trick-or-treating! We’ll continue to keep you updated as we get closer.
