Weather Station at NFCC

North Florida Community College is with new grant funding to purchase a 60-foot tower and weather station to help students learn more about weather.

The station is able to observe temperature, UV index and humidity. All of the information will help students get a leg up before they go to a university.

NFCC instructor Tony Delia said, "We'll be using it to supply our physics, science and math students real world data so they can model weather patterns and develop models that will hopeful make real connections to what they're learning in the classrooms.”

In the near future, students and weather enthusiasts will be able to get live data on the Internet at the college's Web site.
