Personalized Weather Forecasts
If you would like a customized personal weather forecast at any time during the academic year, send your request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the location, date and time, route if traveling, and any other specific weather concerns. Our students usually provide a response within 24 hours. Specific forecasts can be issued for about a week in advance of your event, and climatological conditions can be provided for longer time frames.
