Geary County Emergency Management issued a reminder that Tuesday is the first day of astronomical summer! It will certainly feel like summer outside with heat index values of 95-105 degrees. A Heat Advisory is in effect for portions of northeast and east central Kansas this afternoon.

The amount of solar radiation reaching Earth in the Northern Hemisphere peaks this Tuesday as the Sun ends its six month trek northward.
