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


Strong summertime high pressure makes for a sunny Monday. Wind flow will be out of the northwest which will keep temperatures somewhat cooler. It is the end of July though! A weak trough may pass through the area during the afternoon which could produce some more extensive cloud cover. However, with dry surface air and low humidity, skies will remain generally fair. High temperature in the mid-80s. Winds northwest at 3-5 mph.

We cordially invite undergraduates, graduates, faculty, staff, activists and independent scholars to prepare presentations for the inaugural Gender and Sexual Minorities Conference at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, Friday, Sept. 29 and Saturday, Sept. 30.
