Winds southwest at 5-7 mph. Rainfall between .1-.25" with higher amounts where storms occur.




Don't forget that KU Meteorology Professor Dr. Michael Davis and KU weather enthusiast and director of the campus radio station KUR Mike Regensburger produce the 'Weather & Climate Chat' podcast all summer, as well. The latest edition recorded this past Friday was so jam packed with information, it was cut into two segments for you if you want to hear just one and not the other. 

First segment (recorded this past Friday) discussing past and current weather and getting back into another cool, unsettled pattern for the week of June 5:  Second segment discussing the two huge climate topics of the past week ...
