TODAY'S WEATHER

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

And on and on we go with the drab weather, but some areas Tuesday got some bonus sunshine after around 5 p.m. (not unlike what happened Monday) so that was quite nice. This general pattern will continue for several more days with lots of clouds, rain showers and perhaps some breaks of sun if we're lucky. The good news is a dryer pattern "begins" to set up over the weekend (key word "begins" because there could still be a few showers) and then a more "permanent" dry pattern begins next week. Variably Cloudy. Perhaps a bit of sun with some luck?  Rain showers possible at any time. Lows around 50. Highs around 60.
