The physics of hot weather


Dr. Phil Patterson, chair of the Department of Physics, played a starring role in 11Alive weatherman Chesley McNeil’s forecast during the noon newscast on July 13. McNeil turned to Dr. Patterson for a few words about the physics involved in the heat wave gripping the South.

To view the resulting news clip, which showed students from Dr. Patterson’s class and a few familiar faces from around campus, go to WXIA-TV.
