TODAY'S WEATHER

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

 

Ridging to continue in the upper atmosphere allowing for sunny skies. Very warm temperatures to occur as a result. Dew points are still relatively low so we won't have abundant atmospheric moisture to make it feel muggy. Stay indoors, if possible, and drink plenty of fluids. High temperature in the low-90s. Winds west at 5-10 mph.
