Fraught With Uncertainty! Be Vigilant for Lightning Storms with Heavy Downpours

Thursday, August 16, 2018 - University Meteorologist, Dr. Kevin Kloesel

Mostly sunny, hot and humid for much of the day today, but that heat and humidity will be responsible for lightning storms. Expect a high temperature near 90F for our Move In guests. With our recent heavy rains, any rain today will quickly result in flooding in the usual spots on campus. If a heavy downpour is in progress, delay any vehicular travel on campus.
