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

Low pressure off the New England coast will provide for northerly flow. Mostly cloudy skies are expected as a weak mid-level disturbance passes during the day. High temperature in the low-40s. Winds northwest at 5-8 mph.


Starting 7 a.m., Monday, Jan. 4, 2021, Penn Power Group will be on campus servicing emergency generators throughout the week. During this time, the generators will be serviced and run which could trigger warning alarms. Alarms may be noticeable in certain residence halls but will not be audible in other locations. This will not disrupt power to any building. The biggest annoyance will be the noise when the generators are running. This will be brief and likely not noticeable at most locations. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
