WEATHER

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

High pressure builds across the Great Lakes pushing Hurricane Jose further out to sea. Atmospheric subsidence on the western edge of Jose will likely provide mostly sunny skies. Breezes from the northeast may be slightly stronger than yesterday due to Jose's tightened pressure gradient. High temperature near 80. Winds northeast at 9-12 mph.

Jose, Maria, and an Irma wrap all covered on this week's "Weather & Climate Chat" podcast, hosted by Dr. Michael Davis and Monsoon Mike, who will also discuss a full week of dry, mild weather for our neck of the woods before things perhaps change later next week.
