Do I need an umbrella today?  What's the difference between sleet and hail?  Why are those annoying sirens going off again?  These weather questions and more, answered in COLL-C 105: Weather and You.

Fall 2020 General Details

Instructor: Dr. Cody Kirkpatrick (contact info)

Our syllabus isn't ready yet, but the Fall 2019 syllabus is available at this link.

Our Course and COVID-19

There have been no official decisions yet, but because our class's enrollment is so large I am 99% that we will have to meet entirely online (with no face to face, lecture hall meetings) in the fall.

What that probably means is that we will have a combination of synchronous ["live," but recorded, class meetings] and asynchronous work [all assignments, quizzes, and exams done on your own].  I am still working on the course plan, and I will share any major updates here.

Course Materials

There is nothing to buy!  We'll use the "JetStream" website, provided by the National Weather Service.  In addition, I'll provide numerous handouts and additional readings.  (Hint: get a three-ring binder.)

Once the semester starts, we will do everything through Canvas.

Current Weather Conditions

We'll look at national and local current weather maps like these almost daily during the course.
