The National Weather Service has extended the excessive heat warning until 9 p.m. Friday, as triple digit temperatures continue across the Wichita area.
Much like Tuesday, however, scattered showers are expected to pop up in the region, bringing a bit of badly needed moisture to isolated areas. The .14 that fell on Tuesday afternoon was the first measurable rain recorded in Wichita since July 25.
The rain won’t dent temperatures much, however. Highs are expected to reach 103 or more today and 104 on Thursday, forecasters say. Overnight lows will bottom out in the upper 70s.
The heat index both days should top 105, with south-southwesterly winds in the single digits.
