Daily Brief

August 13, 2020

WELCOME TO THE NEW KUBEARS.COM - An image of the new KUBears.com website on a computer, handheld device, and mobile device all on maroon background with an image of the athletic bearhead logo embedded.


Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

More clouds likely than sun with showers and thunderstorms blossoming up again in the afternoon but again, like yesterday, most of the action may stay south of here as that stalling front and low pressure ripples stay south. Highs a bit cooler than recently with the extra clouds at about 84. 


Join us in thanking the following retirees for their many years of service to KU and congratulating them on their retirement. We wish you well in your new endeavors.
