WEATHER

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

Another beautiful, fair, and mild day. Highs will be in the mid 60s or better, much like yesterday, under high pressure. Some extra clouds could roll in later ahead of a weak cool front, but no more than just clouds are expected.
