Wichita weather: A warm, sunny Election Day

Residents of the Wichita area can’t blame bad weather for not voting today.

Highs are expected to touch 70 under sunny skies, with light and variable winds, forecasters say. Overnight lows will slide into the 40s as a few clouds move through.

Wednesday should be much like today, with highs of about 70 under sunny skies. Winds will be out of the south and occasionally reach the teens.

Pleasant temperatures in the 70s are expected through the work week, forecasters say, before a cold front sends readings plunging next weekend.
