Weather Course


Don't let bad weather ruin your day! Understand the specifics of a forecast and anticipate how the weather will impact you. Learn about meteorological systems, how weather is created, and signs of impending poor or dangerous weather.
Our newly revised weather course covers the profound changes in the ways weather forecasts are produced and disseminated including how supercomputers make forecasts more accurate and how boaters have many choices in getting them while onboard via internet, satellite communications, and smart phones.

What's included
•    What causes weather
•    Why winds blow, fog forms and precipitation falls
•    How storms form, behave and move
•    What clouds can tell us
•    How modern weather forecasts are produced
•    How to get them using computers, smart phones, radios and satellite communications
