After an unexpected heat wave killed thousands of cattle in southwest Kansas, the National Weather Service says “the ring of fire” has settled into the state, bringing more potentially dangerous temperatures in the coming days.
The National Weather Service’s Wichita office on Thursday forecast temperatures between 95 and 100 degrees through Sunday, with the service warning pockets of the state of hazardous weather. The forecast comes on the heels of reports of mass cattle deaths as temperatures suddenly climbed in the beef-producing state.
