Heat map - 7.20.22

This map shows projected heat indices for Tuesday. The Emporia area is in a heat advisory from 1:00-8:00 p.m.

As scary as the hot and humid forecast sounds, remember: it could be worse.

KAKE-TV reports Monday marked the anniversary of one of the hottest days in Kansas history. The temperature soared to 121 degrees in Fredonia in 1936, long before Frank Luntz created the term “climate change.”
