TODAY'S WEATHER

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

More clouds than sunshine today as a nearby front and low pressure cause temperatures to not get as crazily warm as the past few, but still above normal. Some showers will be around, as well, especially later, but at any time. Most of the day may remain dry, however. Highs in the low 70s. Light east breezes.
