New week brings spring-like weather

While local students are out for spring break, spring itself might finally be here to stay.

This week’s weather forecast calls for temperatures in the 60s and even higher – 75 on Wednesday. That will be a welcome change from last week, when snow came to much of Kansas. The Wichita area did not see much accumulation, but parts of northern Kansas saw a half-foot or more.

Expect wind to start the week, with a high of 61 on Monday and 63 on Tuesday. Wednesday should be sunny and 75, according to the National Weather Service office in Wichita.

Thursday will be 67. There is a 40 percent chance of rain after 1 p.m. Shower chances continue into Friday morning, with a high Friday of 56. Next weekend should be warm and sunny, and possibly breezy.
