Today is going to be hot in the Wichita area no matter how you slice it. And it will be a bit of history, as 2011 matches 1936 for the most 100-degree days in the city’s history.
Highs will climb to about 104, forecasters say, with sunny skies and south winds in the teens. Winds will strengthen later in the day, gusting to more than 30 miles an hour.
Overnight lows tonight will be in the upper 70s as the gusty south winds persist. More triple-digit days loom Thursday and Friday, forecasters say, before temperatures cool dramatically over Labor Day weekend.
