Sports Information


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

It's a "tale of two seasons" from how we ended the weekend and started the new work week to how things will end up today. Although it will look pretty with lots of sunshine, temperatures will be about 20 degrees cooler from where they were yesterday and the weekend. Today's high of a cooler 56 with a swift northerly breeze will demonstrate how a cold front can change things rather quickly.
