Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Videos will be streamed on Facebook Live. We hope you will join us for a day of regional Eastertime traditions.

WEATHER

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

Strong low pressure moving through the St. Lawrence River Valley. This will make for a rainy day and tighten the pressure gradient resulting in some strong winds. Very warm temperatures for this time of year. High temperature in the upper-70s. Winds west at 15-25 mph, gusting to 50 mph. Rainfall less than 0.10 inches.

Campus weather experts Dr. Michael Davis and Monsoon Mike recorded a new “Weather & Climate Chat” podcast yesterday discussing past, present and future weather including today’s high winds and tornadoes in the south. Joining the two Michaels is student Stephen who will be sharing some insights into some research he is doing on hail.
