Temperatures return to normal

90s expected through weekend

August 11, 2006


Tired of the recent 100-degree heat? Get ready for temperatures that are more normal for this time of year, says Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.

"It should feel a bit more comfortable today - no triple digits," Schack said. "We'll top out just about average today."

Today's high will reach 91 degrees - the average high temperature for this date - with winds out of the east at 5 to 10 mph. The record high was 111 degrees, set in 1934.

Some patchy fog was reported around the region this morning in low-lying areas, Schack said.

Scattered clouds are expected through the morning, with more sun this afternoon, she said.

No rain is expected today, Schack said. On Thursday, the Lawrence area had about .11 of an inch of rain at Lawrence Municipal Airport.

At 7:15 a.m., the airport's temperature was 68 degrees, the humidity was 93 percent and winds were calm. The average low temperature for this date is 69 degrees. The record low was 55 degrees, set in 1902.

Tonight, the temperature will fall into the 60s, with the low bottoming out at 65 degrees early Saturday morning, Schack said.

Sunday's morning low will be 69 degrees, with Sunday's high climbing to 96 degrees, with partly cloudy skies and a chance for rain, she said.

"There are no triple digits in the extended forecast," Schack said.
