Toasty Sunday expected for the state of Kansas


Unseasonably warm to wrap up the weekend in Kansas. As a stationary boundary drapes across the region, the heat will begin to crank up and enter record territory. Slightly cooler temperatures are expected along and north of the stationary boundary. For those south of the boundary, the stage is set for record high temperatures to be shattered Sunday afternoon.

Highs for south central Kansas, including Wichita and southwest Kansas are forecasted to reach the upper 90s with some areas tapping into the triple digits.

The record for May 4th is 94 degrees set back in 1963.

Summer-like heat will stay in place for most of the region to start off the next week. Record high temperatures will be in jeopardy once again on Tuesday.

Due to the unseasonable heat, it is always a good idea to remind people to take proper precautions; stay hydrated, wear sun block as well as light-colored clothing, hat and sunglasses.

Storms are expected to arrive in the Wichita area later in the week bringing us back to typical May-like conditions. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
