WEATHER

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

Low pressure from the south brings lots of clouds and periods of rain today, mainly the first half of the day, with the showers becoming more scattered the second half of the day. Dreary, especially compared to yesterday’s beauty. Still very mild, though. Highs in the mid-50s.
