Cooler temperatures prevail
Forecasts don't call for a hot day, but it will be humid and a few thunderstorms are expected. It might put a damper on your outdoor time, but Lawrence always offers plenty of indoor entertainment to keep you busy. Showers are expected again Tuesday morning, but then the weather should clear and you can shake off your cabin fever!
