Chief meteorologist Ross Jansen says that precautionary measures should be taken on Tuesday as much of the state will look at dangerous temperatures. It is felt that temperatures will rise between 105-110.
The sky will be mostly clear on Tuesday morning. The lows will return to the 70s with light south winds. Highs will reach the upper 90s and low 100s by Tuesday afternoon. The heat consultation covers all of central and eastern Kansas.
Several storms may develop in far west Kansas on Tuesday night, but these are not expected to last long. Much of the state will have an increased chance of storms Wednesday as the front moves in the area. Temperatures will fall back into the 80s and low 90s for the second half of the week.
