Hot and steamy in Kansas City as heat index soars over 100 degrees
It will be another hot and steamy afternoon in the Kansas City metro Tuesday as the heat index is expected to climb above 100 degrees across the area, according to the local FOX4 television station.
Afternoon highs will climb into the 90s, but the heat index will make it feel like its over 100 degrees, said FOX4 meteorologist Michelle Bogowith.
“The heat and humidity will continue to build into the lunch hour and early afternoon as temperatures continue to soar into the 90s,” she said. “It’s going to feel like the triple digits as we round out this evening — anywhere between 100 and 110 degrees.”
There will not be much relief form the heat until late this evening.
A heat advisory will be in affect for the afternoon and evening hours because of the dangerous heat.
