Go check out our Syllabus (link at the very top) if you want all the gory details about all aspects of our course.

Current Weather Conditions

We'll look at national and local current weather almost daily during the course.  I bet you already know how to interpret these images!

This Website

We'll use a combination of this website and Canvas for the course this semester.  If that gets to be too confusing or too cumbersome, we'll adjust as needed.
