It felt more like late September than mid-July this morning in Wichita and elsewhere in Kansas. That chill was even felt in the record book.
Wichita’s low of 55 matched the record low for July 15, first set in 1990. Russell shattered its record low by 5 degrees when it reached 51 overnight. That broke the previous record of 56 in 1973.
More record lows are possible tonight, forecasters say.
