WEATHER

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

Yesterday's weak cold front came through almost unnoticed with no more than few clouds and some winds, but you'll notice the difference temperature-wise today. Not brutally cold, but about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday's nice highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. Expect highs today right around 50. Some increasing clouds this afternoon and a shower or two tonight as another cold front heads in.
