Wichita weather: A dreary Friday for the metropolitan area

Cloudy and cool with a good chance of rain is Friday’s forecast for the Wichita area.

Highs will only touch 50 after surging into the upper 60s the day before, forecasters say. Light north winds will intensify as the day progresses, increasing from the single digits to nearly 20 miles an hour. A slight chance of rain persists into the overnight hours before skies clear on Saturday.

It will be cooler, though, with highs only reaching the upper 40s. More sunshine is expected Sunday, forecasters say, and it will be a few degrees warmer.
