Pull out your shades, but hang on to your hat - periods of sunshine and some strong breezes are moving into Lawrence today.

"It does feel like spring," said Matt Sayers, 6News meteorologist. "It's much warmer than what we had last week."

Sayers is predicting this afternoon's high to climb to 58 degrees, with winds shifting from the south to the west at 15 to 20 mph.

Lawrence received about a fourth of an inch of rain overnight, but no more rain is expected today, he said.

At 2:43 p.m., the temperature at Lawrence Municipal Airport was 48 degrees, the humidity was 76 percent and winds were from the west at 23 mph, making the windchill 40 degrees.

Today's low temperature was 41 degrees. The average low for this date is 39 degrees. The record low temperature was 15 degrees, set in 1913.

Temperatures will be climbing into the 50s after noon, reaching a high of 58 degrees by late afternoon. The average high for this date is 61 degrees. The record high was 84, set in 1913.

Overnight, the low temperature will drop to 32 degrees by early Tuesday morning, with winds dying down. Most of the clouds will move out Tuesday.

"For the most part, we're talking sunshine," Sayers said.

Tuesday's high temperature will reach 59 degrees, he said.

Wednesday's morning low will be 45 degrees, with Wednesday's high climbing to 69 degrees, with partly cloudy skies, he said.

There's a chance for some thunderstorms Wednesday night into Thursday, he said.
