Students in the meteorology program at the University of Lowell provide weather forecasts for the university community and for the residents of the Lowell area. The forecasting service is organized and run entirely by the students through the University of Lowell student chapter of the American Meteorological Society. Students record a forecast and discussion on a phone answering machine and deliver written forecasts to key university offices. The service recently expanded to include periodic discussions by students on the local cable-television station.
