WEATHER

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

Nice ‘feeling’ for a while today, but not too nice ‘looking.’ Temperatures will be well above normal in the mid to upper 50s out ahead of a strong cold front which will bring rain showers at any time throughout the day. That front comes through tonight and we might switch some of those leftover rain showers to snow showers.
