Wichita weather for Thursday: Flirting with 60

Highs in the 60s in January?

It could happen in the Wichita area today, forecasters say. But even if the mercury merely tops out in the upper 50s, that’s still pretty pleasant for mid-winter in southern Kansas.

Sunny skies and light south winds are also expected. Overnight lows will drop to the low 30s, and Friday will be colder.

Highs on the final day of the workweek will be in the mid-40s, which is close to the typical high this time of year. The weekend will be even chillier, with highs in the 30s on Saturday and only in the 20s on Sunday.
