STORMS CANNOT BE RULED OUT...ESPECIALLY IN COUNTIES NORTH AND WEST
OF THE NEBRASKA TRI-CITIES. AS FOR TEMPERATURES TODAY...IT WILL
ANOTHER TOASTY ONE...WITH MOST OF THE AREA EXPECTED TO AT LEAST
REACH THE LOW 90S...WITH MID TO UPPER 90S MORE COMMON IN NORTH
CENTRAL KANSAS. FACTORING IN HUMIDITY...HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL TOP
OUT BETWEEN 100 AND 105 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON. TURNING TO
TUESDAY...ALTHOUGH A FAIRLY SMALL CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS LINGERS MAINLY IN SOUTHERN AND EASTERN PORTIONS OF THE
