The Weather Challenge is a national forecasting competition run by the University of Oklahoma. The challenge is a great way to test your forecast skills in various locations against meteorology students from across the country. Five locations are selected every semester (Fall/Spring), with the cities widely varying in climate conditions and locations. For each location, students will forecast the high and low temperature, peak wind speed, and 24-hour accumulated precipitation. Students will then be given penalty points for deviating from the actual conditions. The fewer penalty points, the better the overall forecast.

Registration for the 2012-2013 academic year has ended. The next chance to participate in the Weather Challenge will be in the Fall 2013 semester. If you have any questions or would like to participate, you may contact Professor Clark Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org).
