First 100 Degree Day for Dodge City (July 9, 2009)

The Dodge City Regional Airport had its first 100 degree day of the year Thursday with a high of 101 degrees.  Most locations in southwest Kansas reached 100 degrees with Liberal and Elkhart topping out at 106 and 105, respectively.  Other high temperatures included:

Garden City Regional Airport          100

Medicine Lodge                                 104

Pratt                                                     100

Coldwater                                           104

Sublette 7WSW                                 103

It was very humid in south central Kansas.  Medicine Lodge reached 104 degrees, and with the higher dew points, this pushed the heat index to 107 degrees.

The hot weather will continue at least through the early part of next week.  Temperatures should reach at least 100 degrees for most locations.
