UW-W Weather

Online Weather CenterThe Whitewater Weather page was created in 2012 by Dr. John Frye and is available to everyone who is interested in the local weather. Not only does this web page show current conditions and provide up-to-date camera images of campus but it will also give the weekly forecast. This website can provide you with weather specifically tailored to Whitewater. The weather station sits just southeast of Perkins Stadium. It can be easily seen from the stadium during a Warhawk football game. All of the weather information collected from this station is archived in case anybody needs historical weather data on the Whitewater area. View UW-W Weather Page>>
