Wichita weather for Friday: Another nice day

Wichita can bask in another pleasant spring day on Friday, with sunny skies and highs in the mid-70s.

North winds will be light, forecasters say, staying in the single digits. Saturday will be warmer and windier, with sunny skies and highs touching 80.

South winds will be in the teens early and then strengthen into the 20s by afternoon. Gusts will top 30 miles an hour.

Sunday signals the arrival of a stormy period, forecasters caution, with showers and thunderstorms likely. Highs will again be about 80.

Rain could persist into Monday morning before skies clear, but severe weather — including large hail and tornadoes — is possible in the region on Tuesday, forecasters say.

Monitor later forecasts for updated information.
