After a Thursday night storm brought needed moisture to the area, skies are expected to clear to begin the long Memorial Day weekend.
Most of the county received between a half and three-quarters of an inch of rain, with the K-State Ag Research Center reporting 0.74 inches of rain in Hays.
The National Weather Service in Dodge City is calling for partly sunny skies Friday with a high in the mid-70s. That high will jump to near 90 on Saturday, the NWS said.
But Saturday will be windy, as well — up to 17 mph in the afternoon with gusts approaching nearly 30 mph.
There is a slight chance of thunderstorms early Sunday morning, with an increasing chance Sunday night. Storms are again possible on Memorial Day, as well.
