Student weather monitoring in Walker Valley Tennessee

Weather Monitoring

All school groups help us to monitor our weather here in Walker Valley. Each morning before breakfast, a small delegation of students meets at the weather station to collect data on variables such as temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, wind speed, precipitation and river depth. They then get to report their findings to the rest of the students during breakfast, and they use those data to predict the day’s weather using our Wheel of Weather. More information on this project can be found at: Weather Monitoring
