As fall advances closer to winter, Winston-Salem area residents know that the weeks and months ahead can bring weather forecasts of everything from sunny days in the 70s to snowy days below freezing. That’s winter in the South.
For those wondering what kind of weather to expect every day at Wake Forest, detailed information is always available thanks to WeatherSTEM stations on top of the Miller Center and the scoreboard at BB&T Field.
The WeatherSTEM stations use a combination of weather instruments and sensors to take environmental measurements and offer frequently updated details on temperature, humidity, the heat index, barometric pressure and more. Forecasts for several days ahead is available, too.
Each station includes a sky camera, with one directed toward Kentner Stadium, Reynolds Gym, Farrell Hall and Wait Chapel, while the other camera is directed across BB&T Field.
The stations also offer information through Facebook and Twitter accounts, which are updated through automation. On Facebook, the accounts are identified as Wake Forest Weatherstem and Wake Forest Football Weatherstem. On Twitter, the stations can be followed @WakeForestWxSTEM and @WFUFootballWxSTEM.

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
