MSC 243 FORECAST LAB #4, 10/18/11 KNOXVILLE, TN (KTYS) Only quick answers are required. Lab needs to be turned in by 3:15. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A. LOCATION AND CLIMATOLOGY First, we should know the geographical location of Knoxville and its climatology. 1. Use google maps to locate Knoxville. On the topographic map http://fermi.jhuapl.edu/states/maps1/tn.gif , describe briefly any topography near Knoxville. 2. Now go to http://www.nws.noaa.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=mrx and select “Daily Climate Report” for Knoxville Airport, “Most Recent”. This will give some statistics about climatological weather conditions. What are the climate normals for high and low temperatures? Also, note down the high and low temp (in F), precipitation amount and highest wind speed (mph) and associated wind direction for yesterday (I presume that “highest wind direction” means “direction from which highest wind is coming”!)
