Deep mid-level trough extending from the Great Lakes to the central Gulf Coast will keep southerly flow in our area. Cold front passage yesterday will slow down and become nearly stationary. Several impulses of energy will ride along the stalled out front giving showers and rain to the area. High temperature in the mid-60s. Winds calm. Rainfall between .25-.5" with higher amounts in heavier rain bands.

Hurricane Irma is on everyone's mind. And it's on Kutztown University Meteorologist Dr. Michael Davis and weather enthusiast Monsoon Mike's minds now too.
