WEATHER

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

Unsettled weather pattern as last night's cold front stalls on the east coast. Impulses of energy will ride along that boundary and trigger on/off shower activity, perhaps thunderstorms. High temperature in the upper 70s. Winds west at 5 mph. Rainfall less than 0.1", with higher amounts occurring with storms.
