Good Sunday bloggers,

We are still tracking two main extreme weather events across the USA. The dangerous heat affecting our region and tropical system Hilary affecting southern California.

There was extreme heat in eastern and central Kansas on Saturday with many records broken. Manhattan, Kansas, had a high of 115°! This was the hottest in the USA. The high in Topeka, Kansas, was actually 111°. Our high at KCI was 98°.

Have a great week,
Stay cool and healthy
