Wichita weather: Rain moves out, but wind stays

Showers that lingered overnight should move out of the Wichita area by the start of the work day Thursday, forecasters say.

But the wind that made Wednesday such a blustery day will hang around. Gusts could top 35 miles an hour on a day when the temperature is expected to top 70 under gradually clearing skies. Steady south breezes will be in the 20s before switching to the north-northwest in the afternoon.

Overnight lows are projected to dip into the mid-30s, forecasters say, with the northerly winds easing to the teens. Friday will be cooler, with highs not quite reaching the 60s. There’s a slight chance of showers as well, forecasters say. Winds will be light out of the north, touching double digits on occasion.

The weekend should be sunny and pleasant, forecasters say, with highs in the mid-60s on Saturday and the mid-70s on Sunday.
