As spring advances closer to summer, it is the time of year when weather forecasters tell us to be prepared for showers, thunderstorms and, occasionally, storms that threaten to cause significant damage.
The WeatherSTEM stations use a combination of weather instruments and sensors to take environmental measurements and offer frequently updated details on temperature, humidity, the heat index, barometric pressure and more.
Each station includes a sky camera, with one directed toward Kentner Stadium, Farrell Hall and Wait Chapel, while the other camera is directed across BB&T Field.
The stations also offer information through Facebook and Twitter accounts, which are updated through automation. On Facebook, the accounts are identified as Wake Forest Weatherstem and Wake Forest Football Weatherstem. On Twitter, the stations can be followed @WakeForestWxSTEM and @WFUFootballWxSTEM.
