WEATHER

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

A cloudy and potentially foggy early start to Tuesday should break into a few periods of sun later, but clouds will be the more dominant feature. Precipitation chances will turn more minimal as the day progresses but then perhaps ramp up in the form of an afternoon or evening shower or thunderstorm. It will turn quite warm as well, with highs pushing 80.

Dr. Michael Davis, Monsoon Mike, and student Mikyle recorded one final 'Weather & Climate Chat” podcast for the spring 2021 semester, reviewing this past weekend's wild wind, this week's unsettled weather, and an early look at commencement weekend coming up.
