Don't let this morning's gloomy gray skies get you down - sunny skies will brighten up Lawrence this afternoon, says Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.
"I think we'll have the clouds around through the morning, but by the midday, they'll start to break up," Schack said. "I think it will be a pleasant Friday afternoon and a pleasant weekend."
