The heat rejoins the humidity in the Wichita area on Tuesday, and forecasters say it’ll hang around for most of the work week.

Highs should reach the mid-90s this afternoon once the sun breaks through the clouds, forecasters say. Light southerly winds may touch double digits at times. The heat index could top 105 in the region, according to the National Weather Service.

Wednesday and Thursday will feature lots of sunshine and highs in the mid- to upper 90s. South winds will be in the teens, gusting to about 20 miles an hour. Heat indeces could touch 108 both days, according to the weather service.

A front will bring cooler air and chances for rain Thursday night and Friday, forecasters say. Highs behind the front will be only in the mid-80s this weekend.
