Plains Swelter Through Record-Breaking Heat Wave

Wichita, Kansas, experienced the earliest 100 degree day in recorded history, The Weather Channel's Stephanie Abrams noted.

Remember the polar vortex? It's long gone on the American Plains.

Temperatures have spiked just weeks after the last snowfall. Wichita, Kansas, hit 102 degrees on Sunday, the earliest triple-digit reading on record for the city. Oklahoma City reached 96, a record for the date.

The heat will stick around through Wednesday at least.
