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

The last time the area had over an inch of rain at one time dates back as far as mid-to-early October, believe it or not. That generally very dry streak ends today and tonight with low pressure bringing periods of rain, some heavy. It’ll also turn windy with winds near 30 mph at times. High temperatures around 44 degrees. Wind chills around 35 degrees. A pretty miserable afternoon and night, but we could use the moisture.
