Sunny, but sticky today

June 2, 2005


Patches of dense fog were making traveling somewhat treacherous early this morning in low lying areas. But the fog was burning off by midmorning leaving behind sunny, but humid conditions.

"It's a sticky and warm day," said Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.

At 8:50 a.m., the temperature was 65 degrees, skies were mostly sunny skies and the humidity level was 84 percent. Winds were from the east at 5 mph.

The National Weather Service had issued a dense fog advisory through 9 a.m. for much of eastern Kansas, including Jefferson, Douglas, Franklin and Shawnee counties. Most of the patches of fog were near rivers, lakes, bridges and low-lying areas, according to the weather service.

Schack said most of the morning fog had burned off in the Lawrence area.

"We'll keep it dry during the day today, with partly cloudy skies," Schack said. "Eventually clouds develop through the afternoon."

Today's high will be 86 degrees, with southeast winds 10 to 15 mph.

Overnight, the low will drop to 64 degrees by early Friday morning, with partly cloudy skies.

"We do have the chance for an isolated thunderstorm and more warm weather tomorrow," Schack said. Isolated thunderstorms are expected on Friday afternoon, through Friday evening, she said.

Friday's high will be 86 degrees, with south winds 12-18 mph.

Saturday's morning low will be 68 degrees, climbing to 87 by Saturday afternoon, with cloudy skies.
