Wichita weather: Another triple digit day

Another day in the 100s awaits Wichita and the Sunflower State, forecasters say.

Highs should reach 105 or so today under sunny skies in Wichita. South winds will be in the teens, with gusts nearing 30 miles an hour. Overnight lows will dip only to the mid-70s with mostly clear skies, and forecasters say Saturday should make it seven straight days of 100-degree days in the metropolitan area.

An excessive heat warning for more than 50 Kansas counties – including the Wichita area – remains in effect until 8 p.m. today.
