WEATHER

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

High pressure remains in control, but a backdoor-cool front may try to bust up the party with a 20% chance of a shower or thunderstorm this afternoon or evening. However, the front is very weak so most areas will remain dry. The high will be about 83 degrees with light southeast breezes which is above normal temperature for this time of year.
