Remember dreaming last winter about sunny skies and tickling winds and warm spring temperatures?

Wichita’s about to get several days of just that, forecasters say.

Tuesday’s opening course will offer a few clouds, with light southerly winds staying in the single digits. Highs should peak in the low 70s. Overnight lows will fall to the upper 40s, with Wednesday delivering highs in the mid-70s.

Winds will shift to the north and strengthen into the low teens, forecasters say, with gusts occasionally touching 20 miles an hour. Lows again are expected to dip into the 40s.

Thursday will offer more sunshine with highs in the mid-70s and light winds. The trend is likely to continue until Mother’s Day, forecasters say, when a chance of rain returns.
