About the School

Waynesboro High School's digital, remote access weather station is the mainstay of our meteorology curriculum. Waynesboro weather data is used daily by WHTM-TV Channel 27, channel 11 using local cable, in the morning, noontime, 5:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., and at 11:00 p.m. Current Waynesboro weather is available world wide over the Internet through the Automated Weather Source (AWS) homepage, Weatherbug program, the Toyota Weather Net of schools and our own weather server. Our weather server has been designated as part of the Home Land Security Weather System.  A live weathercam shows current weather conditions in and around the High School complex. Students also access infrared, visible, and water vapor satellite images along with live radar images through our WeatherTap subscription. As a community service, students provide daily and monthly weather information to more than 40 local business and industrial concerns. Students also collect and upload local climatological data to the NOAA/NASA Forecast System Lab in Boulder, Colorado as part of an 15 year project. Waynesboro High School, one of the twenty- five original GLOBE schools, continues in the project entitled: GLOBE: Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment.
