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

A weak cool front slid through last night and as a result, today will be a bit cooler than yesterday, but still mild for this time of year. Thinking highs in the upper 40s with partly sunny skies. Christmas Day tomorrow looks the same. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy Holidays from Monsoon Mike and Dr. Davis.
