Wichita hits the century mark for the first time this year

The thermometer hit triple digits in Wichita today for the first time this year, reaching 101 at 4:40 p.m. at the National Weather Service’s official recording site next to Mid-Continent Airport.

Wichita averages a little more than one 100-degree day in June each year, and 2009 appears poised to top that, with similar highs forecast for Friday and Saturday.
