Excessive heat warning issued for Monday, through 8 p.m.
One day after topping 100 degrees for the first time in 2011, the National Weather Service expects more of the same and has issued a second excessive heat warning.
The warning is in effect until 8 p.m. Monday night. The heat advisory that had been in effect has been expired.
According to the weather services, heat indices are expected to be between 110 and 115. Prolonged exposure can lead to heat related illnesses.
Those in the area of the warning, which covers virtually all of northeast Kansas, are urged to stay hydrated and avoid outdoor activities. Remember to check on family and neighbors who may not be as able to take care of themselves and monitor pets as well.
