WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger
High pressure moves off the Carolina coast and settles in for the early part of the week. Early morning fog will give way to mostly sunny skies. Winds will increase throughout the day. Since these winds will be southerly, temperatures will climb (and so will the moisture). High temperature near 90. Winds south at 7-9 mph.
