After six consecutive days of 100-degree temperatures, Wichita will get a bit of a break from the heat wave over the next few days.
There may even be some badly needed rain. Scattered showers are possible in the region this afternoon and evening, with highs in the upper 90s. South winds in the teens to low 20s, with gusts to more than 30 miles an hour.
Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s as chances for showers continue, forecasters say. Friday will be distinctly cooler, with highs in the mid-80s. That’s where temperatures typically are in Wichita this time of year. An isolated shower can’t be ruled out, forecasters say.
