Excessive heat continues across the central and southern Plains, and even though a cold front is expected to arrive on Tuesday, temperatures are still going to be unseasonably hot.
The front is expected to move into northwest Kansas early Tuesday, which will keep afternoon highs in the 90s and provide a chance for isolated late day storms. Much of central and southern Kansas will have a chance for record heat Tuesday afternoon with highs 105-110+.
Scattered storms will be possible over northern Kansas Tuesday night, and even with a shift in the winds for Wednesday, temperatures are still goign to be hot with highs in the 90s to near 100. Scattered storms will be possible statewide on Wednesday, which will provide some temporary relief from the excessive heat.
