WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU’s Dr. Michael Davis and “Monsoon Mike” Regensburger

Showers and thunderstorms likely as cool air begins to intrude on the oppressive air mass that was in place for the weekend. Relief is coming but we have to contend with some potential severe weather. Primary threats are wind and heavy rain. High temperature in the mid-80s. Northeast wind at 5 mph. Rainfall between 0.5-0.75" with higher amounts where storms occur.
