Weather Alert: Dangerous heat for Kansas
Peak of heat wave hits this week
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Summer time means hot weather and sometimes also dangerously hot weather. All the extra heat this week though is due to Kansas being under a heat dome. This heat dome looks to grip the Midwest through Saturday. High temperatures and humidity will bring the heat index to near 100-105° for the next 3 days. This combination will make heat exhaustion and heat stroke a danger to those who work or spend time outside.
