WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

The beautiful weather of the past several days is sadly a thing of the past, making way for what is looking like a pretty unsettled day with cloudy skies and periods of rain, showers and thunderstorms, some of which can be heavy. A solid inch or two is possible through tonight as a low pressure and front traverse the area. It’ll be tropically humid, as well, with temperatures, however, hanging in the low 80s.
