Wichita weather: A taste of spring

Spring fever in early February?

Wichita residents may well be battling a case of it this weekend as temperatures soar into the 60s and 70s under sunny skies. Meteorologists will be keeping an eye on thermometers as records could fall in several locations over the next couple of days.

Highs are expected to reach the upper 60s to low 70s today in Wichita and the mid-70s on Saturday. More 60s are expected through early next week.

Winds will be in the teens Friday and ease to the single digits on Saturday before flipping to the north and turning gusty on Sunday.

But this nice stretch of sunny, warm weather doesn’t mean winter is at an end: more seasonal temperatures will return the middle of next week, forecasters say.
