Wichita weather: Pleasant Friday serves as appetizer for nice weekend

A spell of pleasant autumn weather is in the forecast for the Wichita area today and through at least the weekend.

The weekend will see the arrival of much cooler air, forecasters say, with highs around 80 on Saturday and only 70 on Sunday. More sunshine and light, variable winds are expected.
