KU Winter Scene


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

Area of low pressure that brought yesterday's snow will move into New England. Winds will increase and be rather strong out of the northwest. Could be some snow squall activity by the afternoon. Mostly sunny conditions for much of the day. High temperature in the mid-30s. Winds northwest at 15-20 mph, gusting to 45 mph.

The first “Weather and Climate Chat” podcast of the new year has been recorded. Hosts Dr. Michael Davis and Monsoon Mike Regs discuss past, present, and future weather and some climate topics. This week’s topics include the wildfires in Australia, the Amazon and flooding in Jakarta. In addition to clicking here on YouTube, you can also hear this program and other KUR-produced talk programs on Spotify by searching "Kutztown University Radio."


We regret to inform the KU community of the death of James H. Tinsman Jr., longtime KU faculty member. Jim taught at KU from 1959 through 1991, retiring as a Professor of Anthropology. He was instrumental in the development of APSCUF, served as president of the local chapter, and as president of the state APSCUF from 1986 to 1992. A memorial service will be held Saturday, Jan. 18, at 10 a.m. in Ludwick Funeral Homes, 25 East Weis Street, Topton. Burial, with military honors, will follow in Topton Union Cemetery. Relatives and friends are invited to a visitation on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
