Temperatures falling this afternoon

November 1, 2004


Keep your umbrella handy today and grab a jacket -- more rain is expected this morning and the temperature will fall into the low 50s by this afternoon.

"We've had a few showers this morning and they're still lingering around," said Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist. "We could still wet that pavement again for the morning hours."

Scattered showers moved through the area overnight. By 8 a.m., Lawrence Municipal Airport had recorded 0.3 of an inch of rain. Schack said the steady rainfall in the region will drift off to the east.

"It's going to be a little bit mild, temperature-wise," she said. "We should slowly fall off today as we stay under the cloud cover."

Temperatures were starting in the upper 50s this morning, but were expected to drop to 55 by late afternoon, Schack said.

A cold front comes through this evening, bringing cloud cover and cooler temperatures, she said. The National Weather Service says there's a 50 percent chance of rain tonight.

"It's going to feel like November on Tuesday," Schack said. Tuesday's morning low will be 41, climbing to a high of 49, with mostly gray skies, she said.

Early Wednesday, Lawrence could see a few showers, she said. The National Weather Service said the chance for rain is 20 percent Wednesday morning. Wednesday's morning low will be 33, with the high reaching 55 Wednesday afternoon.
