S1 Climate and Meteorology 04: Meteorology
By: Georgeiannacash Guido
Title: Meteorology Lab

Introduction:You will be required to collect hourly weather data for one day. Once you have collected 24 hours’ worth of weather data, you will create surface weather station models of the data. Then, you will graph some of the weather data to draw conclusions about the relationships between the data. Finally, you will write a laboratory report of your results.

Objective: The objective of this lab assignment is to determine how we can use weather data to predict the weather.

Problem: How can we use the relationships among weather data to produce a forecast?

Hypothesis: Using the relationships from weather data write a hypothesis about how weather may be forecasted. Remember this is your hypothesis. Make sure it is reasonable and done before you plot the weather station models and create your graphs.

Relationships among weather data are uses to produce forecasts because they help meteorologists predict what may happen that month or week by analyzing patterns. When there is a pattern of weather they can predict what type of weather that will probably be coming based on the pattern.


Materials and Procedures: Use the National Weather Service site to choose a location for your hourly observations.

All 24 hours are already recorded and data can be transferred into chart.

Data and Observations:

Part I: Record all 24 hour weather data for your location. Please fill in all data below using the data from the National Weather Service site. Be sure to include the date and location for your data.(26 points)

Note: If you can click on these I am going to include them in the description.
Reflection Questions:

1. What did you learn about weather forecasting by completing the activity?

I learned that recording data is very complex and seen how different things change in variation to each other.

2. In your own words, how are weather data used to make forecasts?

Weather data is used to make forecasts when meteorologists analyze all the data they collected to track patterns and they will then tell you on the news what they think is going to come next. They are not always correct because sometimes these patterns may change, however when a new pattern shows up they will start analyzing that one instead and then tell you what they think will happen based on the new pattern.


3. In your own words, what is the relationship between temperature, dew point temperature, and air pressure.

The temperature, air pressure, and dew point all go up and down in relation to each other.

4. Did your findings support your weather predictions?

Yes they did.
