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

A chance of showers, mainly before 11 a.m. Cloudy, with a temperature falling to around 40 by 5 p.m. Southwest wind 10 to 15 mph becoming northwest in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.


Winter Weather Precautions

This coming weekend outside temperatures will drop well below freezing. With the onset of cold winter weather, water supply pipes are susceptible to freezing if ambient temperatures drop below 32 degrees. Frozen pipes, including fire sprinkler system pipes and sprinklers can burst and cause significant damage to building components, furnishings and other building contents. Additionally, leaving windows open can significantly increase energy costs. For these reasons, when outside temperatures drop below freezing, windows and doors that open to the outdoors or unheated areas of buildings must remain closed at all times. This is especially necessary over weekends and holidays since an open window or door may go unnoticed. Some occupants open windows or doors when their area feels too warm. If your office, room or area feels too warm please contact the Work Control Center for assistance rather than opening windows or doors.
