More sunshine this afternoon

Dreary start, but temperatures climbing to high 80s

August 21, 2006


It might look a little gloomy and gray this morning. But don't worry about an umbrella - thunderstorms are staying off to the west of the Lawrence area, says Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.

"We should keep it dry for the morning and, I think for the afternoon," Schack said."It's a hazy, dreary-looking start. . . . Eventually, more sunshine returns this afternoon."

Temperatures will climb into the 80s by late morning, topping out at 88 degrees by late afternoon, she said. The average high temperature for this date is 89 degrees. The record high was 109 degrees, set in 2003.

At 7:15 a.m., Lawrence Municipal Airport's temperature was 64 degrees, the humidity was 100 percent and winds were out of the north at 3 mph.

The average low temperature for this date is 67 degrees. The record low was 42 degrees, set in 1956.

Overnight, temperatures will fall to 63 by early Tuesday morning. Tuesday's high will be 90 degrees, with partly cloudy skies, Schack said.

Wednesday's morning low will be 65, with Wednesday's afternoon high climbing to 91 with partly cloudy skies, she said.

The next chance for rain will be on Saturday morning, she said.
