Wichita weather: A break coming from the heat

It will be hot again today in the Wichita area, forecasters say, but at least the record book won’t break a sweat.

Highs should tickle triple digits for the sixth straight day today, with south-southwesterly winds in the teens. There’s a chance of showers today and tomorrow, which could bring welcome moisture to parched lawns, landscaping and crops.

Much cooler air will dip into the region for Thursday, with highs forecast only in the low 90s. But it’ll only be a brief respite, with highs soaring back toward 100 by the weekend.
