Temperatures soaring into 90s

July 8, 2005


If you have a chance, it's a good day to get outside -- sunny skies and warm temperatures are on tap again today, said Tim Reith, 6News meteorologist.

"I think we'll top out at 91 degrees," Reith said. "It's very nice this morning."

At 8:30 a.m., the temperature was 72 , with east-southeast 3-mph winds and mostly clear skies and 82 percent humidity.

Storms were thundering through the Concordia area in central Kansas, but were expected to weaken and not reach the Lawrence area, Reith said.

"It looks like any rainfall should stay off to the north and west of us," he said.

The temperature was expected to be right around the average for this date, with the temperature climbing into the mid 80s by noon before climbing up into the low 90s by late afternoon, Reith said. Winds will be from the south at 8-12 mph, he said.

Overnight, skies should be mostly clear, with the low dropping to 69 by early Saturday morning, he said.

Saturday's high will climb to 92 by late afternoon, with south winds 10 to 15 mph.

Sunday's morning low will be 68, with the high reaching 93 by Sunday afternoon.

Reith said if Hurricane Dennis moves off to the west, it could eventually bring stormy weather up through the southern states into Kansas.

"We may feel the effects of it in the middle of next week," he said.
