WEATHER

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

A weak cool front moved through last night meaning that today, while still hot and humid, won’t be quite “as” hot or humid. High temperatures around 90 and dewpoints in the 60s instead of temperatures in the mid- to upper 90s and dewpoints in the 70s. See? Not much, but slight improvement. Oh, and plenty of sunshine.
