Warhawks enjoy four distinct seasons — autumn, winter, spring and summer — with traditions and events taking place outside year-round as we live, learn, work and play at UW-Whitewater.
Weather and climatology are deeply rooted in our academic expertise, and our Department of Geography, Geology, and Environmental Science operates a weather station located just east of Perkins Stadium.
Track the current weather conditions and check the weather forecast by viewing the station’s current observations below.
ABOUT THE WEATHER STATION
Learning and research
Data collected from the weather station is used in various geography, geology, and environmental science classes. Students and faculty can research and analyze changing weather patterns and conditions, as well as calculate long-term climate patterns.
History of the weather station
Established in 1997, the station has been upgraded through the years. It currently tracks barometric pressure, temperature, dew point temperature, wind speed and direction, precipitation, solar radiation, heat index, wind chill, and more.
