Warm, dry conditions continue

July 11, 2005


Crank up your air conditioner and water the grass -- another hot, dry day is in store for Lawrence.

"It looks like a toasty afternoon, not only for today, but as we head into the next few days," said Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.

Although Hurricane Dennis is bringing wet weather into the southeastern U.S. today, eastern Kansas is expected to stay dry, Schack said.

"A few clouds are approaching from the east," Schack said.

At 8 a.m., Lawrence's temperature was 69, with calm winds, hazy skies and an 87 percent humidity.

Today's afternoon high will reach 89 degrees, with an easterly 5- to 10-mph wind, she said.

"It's still going to feel quite warm and humid today," she said.

Overnight, the temperature will drop to a low of 69 by early Tuesday morning. Tuesday's high will be 89, with north-northeast winds 5 to 10 mph and partly cloudy skies. Schack says there's a possibility of late isolated thunderstorms on Tuesday night. The National Weather Service says there's a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Wednesday's morning low will be 68, with Wednesday's high climbing to 87 under partly cloudy skies.
