Day 4: ISU Mesonet

Boy, I'm sure glad I didn't promise 30 sequential days, as I have been sick.  I'm better now after a round of antibiotics!

I love this site.   Teachers of earth science can see the progression of weather in real-time across the state by looking at the webcams from Sioux Falls, KCCI, KCRG, and the Iowa DOT.  Compare with the results of the current radar from the national weather service, or let kids see and critique the 'cool lapses' videos cloud types, precipitation types, and landscape changes across the state.   After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, especially in the world of earth science.

What would you  use this site for in terms of classroom resources?
