Weather in the Heartland

SCIENCE 1257, Course Code: 2241

Weather affects our lives every day. Learn the foundations of meteorology and discover the aspects of our weather that make developing multi-day forecasts a challenge. We'll focus on weather in the Midwest and how forecasts are developed based on interpreting statistical models and expert opinion. You'll also have a front row seat to how a TV weather team constructs a professional presentation of its weather updates. WMBD/WYZZ Chief Meteorologist Chris Yates will host a class visit to the WMBD/WYZZ studio in Peoria to observe a live studio broadcast of a weather update. Transportation to the studio on the last day of class is not included.

Course Fee:

Transportation to the studio on, Friday March 22nd, is not included. Studio address: WMBD/WYZZ TV Studio, 3131 N. University, Peoria, IL 61604.
