Showers may dampen Wichita's Friday

Residents of the Wichita area may want to keep the rain gear within easy reach later today, forecasters say, because scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected in the area.

While the storms are not expected to be severe, they could well dampen prep football games and Wichita’s Final Friday festivities. Highs should reach the mid-70s, with winds out of the southwest gusting to the mid-20s.

Saturday should be sunny, with highs in the upper 70s and light winds out of the west-northwest. More sunshine is expected Sunday, with highs surging toward 90.
