Wichita weather: A pleasant day before the heat wave settles in

Wichita will enjoy one more nice day before summer’s sizzle kicks back into gear.

Highs today will be in the upper 80s with modest easterly winds in the low teens, forecasters say. Gusts will nudge the 20s at times. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms arrives late tonight, with overnight lows in the low 70s.

Wednesday will see the start of the heat wave, with temperatures flirting with or reaching 100. Highs hitting the century mark are expected the rest of the work week, forecasters say.
