WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger
The persistent stormy pattern of the past few days gives its last breath today with another round of showers, thunderstorms, and/or downpours, especially in the afternoon. As with yesterday, watch for localized flooding. Hopefully today's worst floods spare us this time. Highs in the low 80s.
