MSC 243 FORECAST LAB #10, 11/29/11 ERIE, PA 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 Erie and its climatology. Go to our “Weather Data” page. 1. Looking at the map of Erie: if lake effect snow were to occur (which is not necessarily the case any time this week), what would be the optimum wind direction? 2. Looking at http://www.coastwatch.msu.edu/erie/e3.html , what is the approximate temperature of the lake near Erie? B. CURRENT OBSERVATIONS 1. First, check the surface station models in the vicinity of Erie. Where is the low pressure center, and what value of lowest pressure is being reported (to the nearest tenth of a mb)? Describe briefly any interesting weather conditions in the area (precipitation and type, visibility, winds/gusts).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
