WEATHER

Weather forecasts are provided by KU’s Dr. Michael Davis and “Monsoon Mike” Regensburger

This annoyingly stubborn pattern is about to break, but not without a potential grand finale today. Yes, some of those daily showers and storms this afternoon and evening could be severe with gusty winds, torrential downpours and perhaps even some rotation. Humid with highs in the mid-80s. Tomorrow begins the turnaround as that stalled front dissipates … thankfully.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES
I want to thank everyone who came to my retirement party to wish me a fond farewell. I am so grateful for all of the friends I have made over the 29 years of working at Kutztown University. I received many cards, gifts and of course, lots of hugs. I will miss you all. I especially want to thank Bernard McCree and the folks in Financial Aid for all of their love and support. It’s been a great ride.
