WEATHER

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

Dorian stays well to our south and pushed out to sea by a trough exiting the Great Lakes. Cloud cover will be extensive thanks to these two weather features. Chance for rain during the afternoon. High temperature in the low-70s. Winds east at 10-12 mph. Rainfall less than 0.1 inch.

Yesterday, Dr. Michael Davis and Monsoon Mike recorded a podcast discussing Hurricane Dorian and how it affects or doesn’t affect our weather this coming weekend. Click here for the podcast
