WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says Wichita warmed to 100 degrees on Tuesday and we are on our way back into triple-digit territory today. However, the heat index will be closer to 105 degrees when you factor in the humidity.

A weak cold front will bring some slightly cooler air to parts of Kansas today. Areas along and north of I-70 will be 5 to 10 degrees cooler than Tuesday, but we are still talking a hot (and muggy) afternoon in the lower to middle 90s.

A stalled frontal boundary may produce a storm or two this evening, but there is a better chance of showers/storms on Thursday, especially across northern and western Kansas. Overall, the risk of rain is on the low side, but a few communities may pick up some much-needed moisture.
