WEATHER

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

A washout as the remnants of Hurricane Zeta cross our area. A solid 1 to 2 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts. Winds will get a bit gusty as well. Watch for spotty flash flooding in normally flood-prone areas. Chilly and raw with highs only about 50. Pretty much as ugly a day as you can get. Hot soup for lunch anyone?
