  • Computer Model products – Student developed maps using NAM, GFS, and custom model forecast solutions. Wxchallenge cities will also be hosted throughout the season.
  • Student Chapter Updates – Updates from the RSO including meeting minutes, volunteer activities, and campus weather events.
  • Useful Links – Resources covering all aspects of the atmosphere, especially useful for WxChallenge participants!
  • CMU’s Meteorology Department – Information about our professors in the CMU Meteorology Department, the only undergraduate program in Michigan.
