Kutztown University Daily Brief

Kutztown University campus life 


Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger
Trough draped across the Mid-Atlantic region. A cold front will pass through the region tomorrow and could trigger storms by the afternoon. The jet stream and mid-level instability support convective cell development but organization into anything linear is not anticipated given current model guidance. The air mass will be moist so any storm has the potential for heavy rainfall. High temperature in the upper-80s. Winds west at 6 mph. Rainfall between 0.1-0.25 inches with higher amounts where storms occur.
