Launched on World Meterological Day in March 2014, Nowcasting utilized the arts to connect everyday understandings and interactions with 'weather' to scientific understandings of wider climate systems. Each commissioned artist used data generated by the University's Weather Station, creating narratives and experiences that provoked emotional responses to the relationships between climate and weather.
