The triple digits return to Wichita and much of Kansas today.

Forecasters say highs will hit 100 today, with south winds in the teens and gusting to nearly 25 miles an hour under sunny skies. Overnight lows will drop only to the mid-70s under mostly clear skies, and Wednesday looks even hotter.

Highs are expected to climb to 102 in Wichita, forecasters say, with sunny skies and more south winds in the teens. Gusts may reach 20 miles an hour, and may help keep ozone readings in Wichita from reaching levels that violate federal limits.
