Wichita, Kansas 2021-07-20 18:53:33 –
The dew point rose from central Kansas to the east, making me feel sultry this morning. By the afternoon we saw this mix. Moisture levels in the atmosphere remain low until evening.
Clouds from the heat of the day disappear overnight, so it should be warm outdoors.
Our sunset looks bright orange-red due to the last few nights as smoke is floating in the sky due to a wildfire in the west. Air quality throughout Kansas ranges from good to moderate. All-night temperatures under the stars are comfortable enough to give A / C a short break, but not long. However, people with respiratory illness may want to stay indoors and keep them inflated to avoid inhaling this heavy smoke.
Our west highs continue to mark our direction. This makes the temperature warmer every day. The possibility of rain does not seem to exist.
Rain showers and storms can approach the northwest corner on Wednesday night, but there is no possibility of dampness for us.
The monsoon season begins in the west, with showers and thunderstorms around the Four Corners, which cannot be used as the main axis of the rain arc around us.
The high temperatures of the 90’s will almost always be locked in by Thursday. By Friday there are three more digits of temperature readings. The heat will continue to increase from the weekend to next week. The storm will approach our north and west next week, but we seem to stay on the dry and toasty side of things.
