It wasn’t as hot in Kansas City Tuesday as it was on Monday by one degree. The western and extreme northern part of the state continues to swelter under the heat with no relief in sight. Kansas City recorded a high yesterday of 104 degrees, one degree shy of the 105 recorded Monday afternoon. If it tops triple digits today, it will be the 5th straight day Kansas City suffers under three digit temperatures. It wasn’t quite as hot across the state in St. Louis, where the high hit 97.
