WEATHER

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

Low pressure and an associated cold front will bring rain ending perhaps as a touch of frozen precipitation this morning. Whether or not that frozen precipitation occurs, untreated surfaces could slick up as temperatures will actually drop throughout the day from an early morning high in the 40s, to 30s and lower by lunchtime. Use caution.
