A spring day in Kansas will be on full display Friday, with plenty of sunshine, plenty of wind and plenty of warmth.

Highs in the low 80s on a partly cloudy day, forecasters say. South winds will gust above 30 miles an hour at times, with steady breezes intensifying from the teens in the morning to the 20s by afternoon.

Overnight lows will only drop to the upper 50s, forecasters say, with south winds remaining hearty despite the absence of sunlight. Gusts will still approach 30 miles an hour.

Saturday will offer more sunshine during the day, forecasters say, with highs in the upper 80s and south winds gusting to more than 35 miles an hour. There’s a good chance of showers and thunderstorms late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, with lows in the mid-60s and southerly winds still gusting above 35 miles an hour.

Some of the thunderstorms could be severe, forecasters say, so residents should be alert to changing conditions and be prepared to take appropriate shelter.
