National Weather Service Wichita KS
612 AM CDT Wed Sep 26 2018

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Friday night)
Issued at 229 AM CDT Wed Sep 26 2018

Quiet weather conditions will prevail across Kansas for today and
Thursday as surface high pressure migrates slowly eastward with
cool below normal temperatures for today. Surface high pressure
will continue to move slowly east with warmer temperatures on
Thursday. Meanwhile another upper level wave will move across the
northern plains for Thursday night into Friday. This will push
another decent cold front southward across Kansas during the day
on Friday with rain chances for late afternoon/night.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Tuesday)
Issued at 229 AM CDT Wed Sep 26 2018

Saturday morning will start off on the cool side with a warm front
slowly lifting back northward across the region, as the warmer
air returns for Saturday afternoon. Rain chances look to affect
mainly central Kansas with moisture over-running the warm front on
Saturday. Warmer above normal temperatures look to maintain for
Sunday through early next week along with gusty south winds.

resulting in light winds. A period of mid and high level clouds
will also move across the area with some virga and perhaps a
sprinkle or two before diminishing during the afternoon hours. VFR
