Wichita weather: Patchy fog for morning commute

The morning commute could offer a few challenges in the Wichita metropolitan area, thanks to patchy fog expected to develop across the region.

Clouds will gradually dissipate, however, and winds will stir enough later this morning to clear the fog, forecasters say. Highs are expected to climb into the low 80s, with south-southeast winds eventually reaching the teens. Gusts could touch 20 miles an hour.

After an overnight low in the upper 60s, Saturday is expected to bring plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid-80s. Chances of strong thunderstorms arrive Sunday, forecasters say, so residents in the region should monitor forecasts and conditions closely.
