Breezy, heading into 90s

Next chance for rain coming Thursday morning

June 20, 2006


Dark clouds were moving into Lawrence from the west this morning - but don't expect much rain from them, says Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.

"We may pick up some light sprinkles, enough to wet the pavement in Lawrence," Schack said. "It is weakening rather quickly."

The clouds will break up this afternoon, helping the temperature climb into the low 90s, she said. Winds will be from the south today at 10 to 20 mph, gusting to 30 mph, she said.

"I think we'll top out around 92 degrees," Schack said. The average high temperature for this date is 86 degrees. The record high was 104 degrees, set in 1918.

At 7:45 a.m., Lawrence Municipal Airport's temperature was 75 degrees, the humidity was 79 percent and winds were out of the south at 9 mph.

The average low temperature for this date is 66 degrees. The record low was 52 degrees, set in 1976.

Schack said there were a few raindrops in Lawrence's downtown this morning, but showers were diminishing as they moved through the city.

"We'll keep it breezy and mild tonight," she said. Temperatures will fall to 71 degrees by early Wednesday morning, she said.

Wednesday's afternoon high will climb to 93 degrees, she said.

There's another chance for thunderstorms on Thursday morning and again on Thursday afternoon, she said.

Thursday's morning low will be 71 degrees. Thursday's afternoon high will be 87 degrees, she said.
