"It's going to be quite a soaker," said Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist. "We are expecting periods of heavy rainfall through the midday."

Showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout the Lawrence area, with the high temperatures reaching 80 degrees

"We could see a few strong storms develop this afternoon and evening," she said. Winds will be from the southeast at 5 to 10 mph.

At 7:15 a.m., Lawrence Municipal Airport reported 0.2 of an inch of rain. The temperature was 70 degrees, the humidity was 93 percent and winds were out of the east-northeast at 3 mph.

Did the thunderstorms ever "develop"?

I'm with you, B.G.--I like the rain. It's still muggier than an armpit outside, though.

this afternoon, there were t-storms, nearby but not here. now, they're saying later tonight again, and all could include heavy downpours.
yes, damned muggy! but 80F sure is better than 97F!
walked gnomedog this afternoon soon after those storms. was very nice to walk despite the mugginess. hear the trees and bushes, drip drip drip.
