Cloudy, windy and chilly for Wichita

October has spent a lot of time pretending to be November in the Wichita area, and today is just the latest verse of that particular tune.

Cloudy skies should dominate the day, forecasters say, with highs touching 50 and northwest winds gusting above 30 miles an hour. Wind chills were below freezing as sunrise approached today.

A frost advisory is in effect for tonight, when lows are expected to drop to just above freezing.

Saturday should see widespread frost before sunrise, forecasters say, but the day should seem pretty pleasant – particularly after today. Sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s are expected. It will be a bit windy, with steady breezes in the teens and gusts above 20 mph.
