Wichita weather: Wind eases somewhat on a sunny day

Winds are still pretty brisk in the Wichita area Thursday morning, but they won’t be nearly as robust as they were on Wednesday.

Highs should reach the low to mid-60s under sunny skies, forecasters say, with northwest winds in the teens. Gusts are topping 20 miles an hour at times.

Overnight lows could dip below freezing — 32 degrees — for the first time this fall, forecasters say. Friday should be quite pleasant, with light south winds and highs in the low 60s.

The weekend will be a mixed bag, forecasters say, with sunshine and gusty winds on Saturday and a chance for rain on Sunday.
