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

Low pressure near Nova Scotia and a cold front from the west will contribute to a 30 percent chance of a shower or thundershower this afternoon. Otherwise, expect a mainly fair day with crisp west winds and high temperatures around 77, which is about two degrees below average for this time of year.
