Are you curious about what you’re seeing when you glance out your window at the sky each morning? Do you wonder why the winds are blowing from the southwest one day and from the northeast the next? Do you find thunderstorms exciting, and wonder how hail is formed? And what exactly is graupel? In this quick introduction to meteorology we’ll look at global circulations, jet streams, winds, clouds and thunderstorms. You’ll come away with a greater appreciation and understanding of the weather that you step into each day here in western Montana.
Instructor: Sarah Elsasser has been a lifelong weather geek, always checking the weather before heading into the outdoors. But her interest really kicked into high gear when she began flying airplanes, and realized that understanding weather was crucial to the safety and enjoyment of every flight. She taught aviation meteorology courses for a community college aviation program for several years, and enjoys sharing her understanding of weather phenomena with others.
Relax, eat lunch, and learn!
