Sunny, hot and muggy for Wichita area today

WICHITA - The calendar says summer is just around the corner. Today’s weather says summer’s here in full shimmering, sizzling glory.

Sunny skies, muggy conditions and highs in the mid-90s are in the forecast for today, forecasters say. South winds will intensify during the day from single digits to gusts beyond 30 miles an hour. That will take the edge off the heat just a bit, but heat indices are still expected to top 100 near the Oklahoma border.

Even tonight’s overnight low echoes summer: it will only drop to 75, before temperatures soar near 100 on Thursday.
