Patchy clouds were making for a murky morning in Lawrence. But there will be a little more sun this afternoon as temperatures climb into the mid 50s, says Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.
"You'll want to have a jacket or a coat this morning," Schack said. "It looks like a mild afternoon after a chilly start. . . . It looks like we're heading above average today."
