(Reuters) - Sticky heat was expected to smother much of the country's midsection in coming days as hotter-than-usual temperatures continued to roast parts of the Midwest and South, forecasters said on Sunday.

Areas of Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma were under excessive heat warnings with heat advisories issued for a large swath of the Central United States, according to the National Weather Service.

Heat and humidity were forecast to continue with air temperatures and heat index readings climbing well into the triple digits for parts of the region at least through midweek.
