The hottest weather of the year will be on our doorsteps this afternoon. You’ve been warned. We’re tracking high temperatures to push 100° today, but it won’t even feel that cool. Heat index values (when you factor in the dew points – humidity) will range as high as 115°. In fact, our eastern counties (including Shawnee) are under an ‘EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING’ and a ‘HEAT ADVISORY’ is issued everywhere else. Today marks the start of consistent summer-like weather, for the first time this year.
