Daily Brief

Birds flying over Kutztown University at sunset.

WEATHER

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

Sprawling high pressure over the Northeast will control our weather. After a frosty start, look for wall-to-wall sunshine. Pressure gradient tightens as Hurricane Teddy passes well offshore so there could be some breezy conditions. High temperature in the mid-60s. Winds northeast at 10-15 mph.
