(WICHITA, Kan.) — Most of Kansas will see several days of triple digit heat this week, but forecasters say don’t expect a repeat of last year.
Wichita recorded 53 days of triple digit temperatures last year which broke the record.
This year Wichita has recorded two days over 100 degrees. Last year at this time there had been nine.
There have been parts of Kansas that have seen 110 degrees or more this year.
“This summer doesn't look like it's going to be as hot as last summer. We've already had more rain than we had last year and also La Nina is no longer in place so it doesn't look like we'll have the number of triple digits we did last summer.” says KWCH 12 Meteorologist Ross Janssen.
Janssen says expect triple digit heat through Friday with slightly cooler weather by the weekend.
“We hesitate to call it cooler because it will still be in the upper 90’s. July looks to be off to a hot start as well."
