WEATHER

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

Stationary front parked over the region will serve as a track for some atmospheric moisture. Not much uplift with the moisture plume so we are expecting a cloudy, but dry, day. High temperature in the upper-70s. Winds northeast at 5 mph.
