TODAY'S WEATHER

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

 

Finally … some tangible improvement in our weather pattern! After some morning low clouds and/or fog, skies should clear and become at least partly sunny. That’ll be nice after a few sun-starved days. Temperatures will improve, too, into the low to mid-70s as weak high pressure tries to nose in. Still can’t rule out a shower or a thundershower overnight tonight as unsettled weather still isn’t too far to our south.
