MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Meteorologists such as our First Alert Storm Team use computer models to help them forecast the weather. The University of South Alabama along with four other universities received a $5 million grant from the National Science Foundation to conduct research using machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve forecasting the weather.
South’s portion of the grant is almost $800,000 and will be use to teach the forecast models how to more accurately predict local weather such as sea breezes, weather events that could impact agriculture in our region and large scale weather such as hurricanes.
