Mostly clear and mild tonight then mostly sunny and very warm tomorrow. Record high temperatures are expected over much of western Kansas with some records also possible in central sections of the state.
A cold front will push southward across the state Friday night bringing an end to this unseasonable warmth. Saturday will feel even chillier due to increasing clouds and gusty northeast winds. Look for scattered rain showers Saturday night into Sunday morning. After the rain ends, it will still be mostly cloudy and cooler Sunday afternoon.
Another chance for some light rain showers will come our way Sunday night into early Monday morning. Sunshine will return Monday afternoon. Tuesday through Thursday will be mostly sunny with a warming trend.
