If you listen to WUWM, you hear regular weather updates from the Innovative Weather service.

On this edition of UWM Today, we’re going to take you behind the scenes to meet the people who run Innovative Weather. It’s a unique service established by the academic team teaching the rigorous courses that are the foundation for weather forecasting and staffed by some of UWM’s brightest students.

Joining us in the studio is Clark Evans, associate professor of atmospheric sciences, and Mike Westendorf, a familiar name and voice here on the radio station. In addition to directing operations of Innovative Weather, Mike is also a lecturer in atmospheric sciences.
