The peak of the heat in Kansas is typically late July. In fact, the average high from July 17th through August 2nd for Topeka is 90°. Occasional relief from the heat is to be expected, but near record lows are in the forecast in the coming days.
Summer cool weather is usually found when rain cools things off and temperatures remain cool for a day here and there. However, a long duration stretch of cooler weather right at the peak of the heat is what is in store for 2013. Saturday morning’s record low is 54° for the Capital City and that may be in jeopardy with middle 50s likely for the early hours of Saturday, July 27th.
