A hearts and flowers forecast is in store for Lawrence today -- warm temperatures, light winds and lots sunshine.

"It's a Valentine's Day treat," said Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist. "I think we'll soar into the mid 60s."

At noon, Lawrence's temperature was 57 degrees, the humidity was 24 percent and winds were from the south 18 mph. This morning's low was 26 degrees.

The average low for this date is 25 degrees. The record low was minus 6 degrees, set in 1938. The average high for this date is 45 degrees. The record high was 78 degrees, set in 1921.

Schack said Lawrence's temperatures will climb to a high of 64 degrees today, with winds from the west- southwest at 8 to 15 mph.

Overnight, temperatures will fall to a low of 32 degrees by early Wednesday morning, she said.

Wednesday's afternoon temperature will climb to 46 degrees, with northeast winds at 5 to 12 mph, she said.

Clouds will increase Wednesday afternoon, with a cold front barrelling in Wednesday night, bringing colder weather and a chance for a mix of winter precipitation, Schack said.

"Get ready because the cold air will sweep in Thursday and stick around for the weekend," Schack said.

Thursday's morning low will start at 34 degrees and fall through the day to 31 degrees, she said.

"Any precipitation does look very light," Schack said. "But it might linger for most of the day Thursday."
