10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Kutztown Folk Festival, Fairgrounds
7:30 p.m. Summer Chamber Music Festival, Georgian Room, OM



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

Weak low pressure to pass through the Great Lakes. An associated cold front will pass by the afternoon potentially initiating thunderstorm activity. There could be some strong winds with these storms as evident by the mid-level dry air on the atmospheric sounding (provided by weather balloons). High temperature in the upper-80s. Winds west at 5-8 mph. Rainfall between .1-.25" with higher amounts where storms occur.

Independence Day should be fairly similar to Monday. The Monday cold front passage will shift winds to the north resulting in some moderation of temperatures but it will still be warm. A weak low pressure forms in the southeast U.S. and moves along the frontal boundary by the afternoon. This could produce a scattered thunderstorm. High temperature in the mid-80s. Winds north at 5 mph.




These are the non-instructional positions open on campus at our job board


The KU Print Center will be closed Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4 for the Independence Day Holiday. We will re-open on Wednesday, July 5. If you have any emergency needs, please email Ilene Stroh at

This process will not interrupt the electrical service to the building. The only potential inconvenience may be the noise of the generator, primarily noticeable outside the building. In most interior building locations the noise is not audible or will be very faint. The test usually lasts between 2-4 hours, and the generators will start running about 9-10 a.m. on the designated day.
