Another 100 would give Wichita something unseen in two years

Wichitans may get a taste today of something they haven’t seen in two years.

Wichitans may get a taste today of something they haven’t seen in two years.

If the temperature reaches 100 today, it’ll be the first time since 2012 that highs have hit triple digits for five straight days.

Forecasters are calling for highs to peak in the upper 90s, but haven’t ruled out the possibility of readings climbing to 100.

Wichita last saw a run of four straight 100s a year ago in July and most recently saw five straight 100s in July of 2012, according to the National Weather Service.

Forecasts aren’t calling for any more in the near future, with cooler air arriving as a storm front moves through Wednesday night.
