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).
