When you want the weather forecasters to get it wrong, they get it right. They predicted triple digit temperatures for the western part of the state on Monday, and the western part of the state got them. In Kansas City, the National Weather Service recorded a high at KCI of 105 degrees at 2:36pm. That’s three degrees off the record set in 1936. As if that weren’t enough, the heat index reached 111. The Weather Service doesn’t expect any relief any time soon. It has issued an excessive heat warning for the Kansas City area and much of western Missouri, which it expects to be in effect the rest of the week and probably into next week. Those most at-risk include the very young and the elderly. Precautions are also being issued for student athletes.
