Muggy and windy day for Wichita

WICHITA - A hearty dose of both wind and humidity is in the forecast for the Wichita metropolitan area today, forecasters say.

Cloudy skies and southerly winds gusting above 20 miles an hour can be expected, with highs reaching the upper 80s. Showers and thunderstorms are anticipated after midnight, forecasters said. The strongest storms will feature winds of at least 50 miles an hour and perhaps some small hail.

Rain is expected again on Saturday morning, before skies begin to clear. Highs will be in the mid-80s. A warming trend will begin Sunday that will push temperatures back up toward more typical levels for early August, forecasters say.
