Today could be the earliest 100-degree day in Wichita history

If Wichita hits 100 today – and that’s what the National Weather Service is forecasting – it’ll be the earliest calendar date in the city’s history that the thermometer has registered triple digits.

That distinction currently belongs to May 10, which registered 100 in 1967. The next century mark doesn’t register for nearly two weeks.

There were at least a handful of hundreds on Sunday in Kansas, according to the weather service: Sterling, Medicine Lodge, Dodge City, Anthony and Kingman. Wichita topped out at 94.
