With Kansas today meteorologist Ron L Williams good morning on oil. Well another muggy day ahead looks like it feels like it did yesterday. You know what I I'd I've been getting more complaints than I have. Raises when it comes to a our temperatures you know starting off 75 degrees right now I don't think this is anything that anyone wants that dew point. At a very very muggy 71 degrees and when you get those viewpoints and low seventies. That's when it's kind of hard to ignore you know right when you open up the door early in the morning the air and hits you right in the face. And I wins and about three miles per hour out of the south southeast so. The air pretty still pretty stagnant right now and that kind of sets the stage for the candidate that we're gonna have later on today ninety's again I'd do to the forecast and for the next 24 hours here. Okay that the next 24 hours get to the Al and whatever. Could fit into the afternoon yes going to be pretty dry today we didn't actually have a few showers yesterday that popped up just to the east of Wichita we may see that happen again today keeping Wichita drive on the forecast. Maybe somewhat fair weather clouds developing giving us a little bit of shade but either way 97 for high into the evening. It's going to be another muggy one temperatures coming down through the eighties very very slowly and then 24 hours from now we're gonna find ourselves right back in the seventies. Again as we start our early Thursday morning setting the stage again for ninety's it's really copy paste forecast I've been talking about now. Gathered for this week in week in coming up but it's a still several days away that. Could we see it could mean going to be hot for the weekend I presume you're gonna see any record of broken you think. No I don't think we'll see any records broken and all at once we get that time of year where we can possibly see triple digits this week and that's when a lot of people are asking that question. But for the rest of this month it looks like those record highs. They're really anywhere between 105. And about 113. So a little bit too far out of our grass landing we could see. Some temperatures around the area push 10100. Maybe even wanna one possibly one to. Let's get a records that I don't care and a tap the brakes you exactly usually no one that anyway right right I so what are we got right now. Yeah right now still in the middle seventies mostly these guys aerial wise guy actually looking beautiful. Sunrise those wins. Extremely light and he worked about three to seven miles per hour. The two point of 71 not really affecting our heat indices or feels like temperature on them because that's feel like 75 but in a way. I'll humidity at 88% so that you won't like making the airfield vary vary heavy mud Z. And you may mean give me a moment pull up to plug the source. To get some more words and audit or Monday.

The water in Wichita usually isn't is is fine and I think they're great water here sometimes we'll have a little problem when it but. I did not realize at that plant was built in 1939. There's been some depression area. Money work in on net or something but and a bit old course some of and we talked to Alan King it's public utilities and then those pipes that are so little water pipes in town or ancient they're older of the net. We're still out apria go back the early part of the twentieth century so yeah and climbed some of the infrastructure they're trying to get it. Fixed via the whole thing with with water though if you the united in a dense and interviews and so forth from people they say. This is can be an issue a lot of places especially in the west. But we've had droughts going on now for seems like years. Kansas is near drought condition and water is just becoming very a very valuable commodity mr. Austin before it is now.
