Summer arrives this weekend — not just on the calendar but in how it’ll feel in the Wichita area.

Friday will offer an appetizer, forecasters say, with clear skies and highs near 90. Winds will be light out of the east, occasionally pushing into double digits.

Highs will be in the upper 90s Saturday and Sunday, with sunshine and gusty south-southwest winds. Breezes will be in the teens and 20s, with gusts topping 30 miles an hour at times.

Saturday may even reach 100 in the Wichita area, forecasters say. Lows will be in the low to mid-70s throughout the weekend and early next week.
