Campus weather data and forecasts

Go to weather.uncc.edu for current weather conditions on campus!

Go to the data archive for downloadable files!

This is a path I developed mainly after working with Warren Pettee, but also my fellow faculty: Matt Eastin, Casey Davenport, and Terry Shirley.

The clearest product of this research is the Niner Nation Weather display case on the first floor of McEniry, but we also have the mighty web portal at weather dot uncc dot edu. Warren was even featured in a nice write-up by our college PR people. The weather station, weather display, and weather webpage are the priority, and we also partnered with TOA Systems who are running the US Precision Lightning Network to deploy a sensor on the McEniry roof that contributes to lightning detection and location.

We have the computing equipment via small funds, surplus, and gumption, and weather, climate, and air quality display is on the 1st floor of McEniry. Here are some of the current weather station data traces from the weather station on the roof of McEniry. It is about 70 feet above the campus sidewalks. Some data from the last 24 hours are shown, and so is a climate figure for context, but go to http://weather.uncc.edu/ for a much more complete set of data and figures.
