Even by Kansas standards, the weather has been pretty wacky this week. Meteorologist Brian Barjenbruch (BAR-jen-brook), with the National Weather Service, says the weirdest weather began on Wednesday.

Firefighters are still battling those grass fires in south-central Kansas. Meanwhile, eastern Kansas expects rain and possibly snow showers this weekend.
