Friday may signal the end of the work week, but it’s not the end of the heat wave.
Highs are expected to climb to about 104 in the Wichita area, forecasters say, with the heat index climbing toward 110. The National Weather Service’s excessive heat warning remains in effect until 7 p.m. Saturday for more than 30 counties in Kansas, including all of central and southeastern parts of the state.
South winds will be in the teens today, with gusts approaching 30 miles an hour. Overnight lows will stay in the 80s, and Saturday should see highs of about 105 and south winds in the teens again.
Temperatures may drop to about 101 for highs on Sunday, forecasters say, and could dip just below the century mark on Monday.
