WEATHER

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

Partly sunny and pleasant today, but a weak, cool front could contribute to some clouds around in the afternoon with an outside chance of a sprinkle or shower. Based on the past few weeks, would not be surprised if that frontal passage is dry, but that shower chance is on the table. Highs in the upper-70s.
