After a cooler start to the work week, the National Weather Service in Dodge City said intense heat will return by the weekend.

A high of 87 was projected Monday — 20 degrees cooler than the high of 107 recorded Sunday.

Highs of 92 Tuesday and 94 Wednesday are predicted before the mercury begins to inch back toward the triple-digit mark as the weekend approaches.

There is a slight chance of showers or isolated thunderstorms early Tuesday morning after 1 a.m.
