SHORT TERM
 
(TODAY AND TONIGHT)  
ISSUED AT 235 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022  
 
GIVEN THE HIGH CONFIDENCE IN CRITERIA BEING MET FOR 4 OR MORE  
CONSECUTIVE DAYS OF HEAT INDEX VALUES OF 105 OR GREATER, THE ENTIRE  
AREA HAS BEEN UPGRADED TO AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING THROUGH THURSDAY.  
 
EXCESSIVE HEAT WILL CONTINUE TODAY WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS IN UPPER  
90S, WITH A FEW LOCATIONS TOPPING OUT IN THE LOW 100S. COMBINED WITH  
THE PRESENCE OF HIGH HUMIDITY, HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL RANGE FROM 104  
TO 109 THIS AFTERNOON. THE HEAT WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY BREEZY  
SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 20 MPH THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS PORTIONS OF  
SOUTHEAST KANSAS AND SOUTHWEST MISSOURI.  
 
OVERNIGHT LOWS FALL INTO THE MIDDLE TO UPPER 70S AREAWIDE, PROVIDING  
LITTLE RELIEF FROM THE EXCESSIVE HEAT.  
   
LONG TERM
 
(WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY)  
ISSUED AT 235 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022  
 
EXCESSIVE HEAT AND MINIMAL RAIN CHANCES CONTINUE THROUGH THE END OF  
THE WEEK. DAILY HIGHS IN THE UPPER 90S TO LOWER 100S WILL BE  
ACCOMPANIED BY AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES AS HIGH AS 110. A FEW  
DAILY RECORDS MAY BE APPROACHED ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH THE WEEK  
(REFER TO CLIMATE SECTION).  
 
GIVEN THE POTENTIAL OF THE HEAT CONTINUING INTO THE WEEKEND,  
ADDITIONAL HEAT HEADLINES MAY BE NEEDED. FURTHER ANALYSIS OF SHORT  
TERM GUIDANCE AND CONVECTION CHANCES WILL BE NEEDED TO ADDRESS THE  
POTENTIAL OF FURTHER HEAT HEADLINES.  
 
CONFIDENCE CONTINUES TO INCREASE ON MINIMAL RAIN CHANCES AND  
EXCESSIVE HEAT CONTINUING INTO NEXT WEEK. THIS WOULD FURTHER ENHANCE  
DROUGHT POTENTIAL ACROSS THE AREA AS WE HEAD INTO MID- JULY.
