Wichita weather: Warm and windy, then more showers move in

Wichita can expect another warm, sunny day and plenty of wind today, forecasters say. Then the latest round of showers arrives, with unusually cold air pushing in behind it.

Highs today are projected to reach the low to mid-80s, with south winds blowing steadily in the upper teens to mid-20s. Gusts may approach 35 miles an hour.

A chance of rain arrives after midnight, when lows only drop to the low 60s. Showers and thunderstorms are likely on Wednesday, forecasters say, with highs in the upper 60s and winds shifting from the south early in the day to the north-northwest by late afternoon.

The cold front will help drop overnight lows into the 30s, with north-northwest winds in the mid-20. Chances for rain will persist.

By Thursday morning, snow could mix with the rain, forecasters say.
