WEATHER

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

Another day like the past few: hazy sunshine, hot and humid, with a chance of thunderstorms and a high near 90. Big temperature changes are coming later this week courtesy of a cold front, so if you don’t like this weather, hang in there.
