A break from showers for the Wichita area

The gateway day to Memorial Day weekend will offer Wichita a welcome break from the steady diet of showers that has marked this week, forecasters say.

Sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s are expected today, forecasters say. Light winds out of the southeast should stay in the single digits. Saturday will be similar, though southerly winds will be stronger: steady breezes in the teens, with gusts of more than 20 mph.

Clouds will begin to increase on Saturday night, and slight chances for showers resume Sunday and persist through the rest of the holiday period. Highs will continue to climb into the 80s, with lows throughout this weekend hovering in the upper 60s.
