WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that much of Kansas will be feeling like early summer as the temperatures go up even more for Friday and the start of the weekend. While it won’t be warm enough for record highs, many areas will be above normal for a change.

Friday will start off with clear skies and light winds. Temperatures will be in the 50s, but should warm up into the mid and upper 80s before the afternoon is finished. Look for a sunny sky and south winds under 20 mph.

Saturday will have more of a breeze out of the south. An occasional gust may reach 30 mph and a few more clouds will invade the sky in south central Kansas. The rest of the area will be sunny with highs approaching 90.

More clouds are set to arrive Sunday, which will help to bring the temperatures down a few degrees. Right now, the next chance for some rain won’t arrive until Monday for areas along and east of I-135, and most of those will remain very hit and miss. Look for highs to be near or just above 80 to start next week.
