70s, anyone? Wichita sets temperature record

Wichita celebrated Kansas Day by setting a record.

Boosted by sunshine and a bit of a breeze, the temperature climbed all the way to 71 in Wichita. That broke the city’s record for Jan. 29 of 70, set just five years ago.

Saturday won’t threaten any records, but it’ll still be pleasant for the end of January. Highs could reach 60 before winter returns by the first of next week.
