Another record for Sunday’s heat in Wichita

The record-setting heat on Sunday in Wichita claimed another mark, according to the National Weather Service.

When the thermometer hit 102, it set a record for the earliest highs reached 101 or more in the city — by an entire month.

The previous mark for a temperature of at least 101 was June 4, set in 1933.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was only a few months into his first term as president then…and the Great Depression had the nation’s economy in its grip.
