Northeast Kansas got only a brief respite from summer heat after a 10-day stretch of excessive heat warnings from the National Weather Service. Less than 24 hours after the expiration of our last heat warning, the NWS has issued another excessive heat warning for the area.
Temperatures are expected to range between 90 and 105 degrees Tuesday, and between 100 and 105 Wednesday. The high humidity will raise heat indices as high as 110 degrees.
The warning for Douglas County is in effect from 1 p.m. Tuesday until 8 p.m. Wednesday. But there are several different warnings for the area; start and end times vary by county.
Along with Douglas, Jefferson and Shawnee counties are under an excessive heat warning that begins at 1 p.m. Tuesday and lasts until 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Leavenworth, Wyandotte and Johnson counties are under a warning that goes into effect at noon Wednesday and lasts until 8 p.m. Thursday.
Osage, Franklin and Miami counties are already under heat warnings: Osage and Franklin counties' warning is set to expire at 8 p.m. Wednesday, and Miami County's warning is set to expire at 7 p.m. Thursday.
