Back to more clouds than sunshine today as a warm front will be close to the area and a ripple of energy may throw some rain showers our way. It'll be a close call between no precipitation at all and up to a quarter inch of rain possible, better chances for rain south and better chances for dry north. It'll be cooler today with highs around 60 and breezes out of the northeast. Also, check out Monsoon Mike and Dr. Michael Davis' latest edition of "Weather & Climate Chat" right here. The two Mikes discuss weather past, present, and future and then discuss the major wildfires in Canada. Listen here:

May 10, 1935:  Farming activities resume at Kutztown State Teachers College in order to provide employment for students in financial distress during the Great Depression.  Local farms lend equipment to the college so farming can resume.  The food will be used in the dining hall to feed the students, faculty and staff. 



There will be some interruptions of telephone service today, May 10, 2016 from 5 - 11 p.m. to perform some required emergency maintenance on the telephone equipment.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
