Rainy and Cooler Weather Recorded in Kansas in Summer 2015

The National Weather Service says summer 2015 was wet but not as warm.
The National Weather Service says summer 2015 was wet but not as warm.

Summer in Kansas is often long, hot and dry but this year was unusually rainy. In some parts of the state, 2015 will go into the books as one of the 10 wettest in history. Meteorologist Chad Omitt is with the National Weather Service office in Topeka.

Omitt says 24 hour rain records were set on five separate days at Billard Airport in Topeka in 2015. He also notes that the past summer's weather was not as hot as usual with just seven days when temperatures reached the 100 degree mark, that's about half the average number of triple digit days since the state started keeping records in the late 1800s.
