WEATHER

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

A bit of a spooky Halloween forecast today with periods of rain, fog and gusty winds ahead of a strong cold front. With some luck, we may have a several-hour lull in the precipitation in the afternoon and/or early evening before the big grand finale, that is a line of very gusty winds, heavy rain and maybe even thunderstorms, comes through around 11 p.m. What a way to end Halloween and the month of October. Then the warmth is all over tomorrow. After highs around 72 today, tomorrow might have trouble getting out of the upper 40s or low 50s.
