FAMU Law’s New WeatherSTEM System Gives Real-Time Info on Storm Activity

Florida A&M University College of Law says its newly acquired WeatherSTEM system provides real-time smart weather technology that will benefit the surrounding community beyond the school’s Orlando campus.

The weather system sits atop the FAMU College of Law’s building and includes current temperature, rainfall, pinpoint area lightning strikes, tropical systems and livestreams of the downtown Orlando skyline.

“The WeatherSTEM system provides timely, potential life-saving information to the community with live streaming weather data, weather video and alerts, lightning proximity information and radar satellite imagery,” said Jerome Swaine, project coordinator.

Ed Mansouri, CEO of the Tallahassee-based WeatherSTEM, added that weather technology is particularly important in a university setting because weather can vary dramatically over short distances.

“Having a source of weather information being collected on campus helps the FAMU Law community understand, in real time, weather-related hazards that may be a threat, including high heat conditions, approaching storms and dangerous lightning,” Mansouri said.

A WeatherSTEM app is being developed for use on iPhones, while additional systems are being installed at other FAMU campuses.

FAMU is the second historically Black institution to adopt the technology, following Winston-Salem State University.
