It will be centered on information that is currently available on the Internet and is broadly applicable to all snow climates.

We will ship a workbook approximately 2 weeks before the course. If you live outside of the US, there will be an extra charge for shipping.
The course will focus on a systematic approach to understanding weather from surface observations to the upper atmosphere. There will be a mixture of real-time weather product analysis and forecast exercises that introduce important patterns to recognize.
At the end of the Winter Weather Forecasting course, participants will generate a wind, temperature, and precipitation forecast on their own, using products available on the web.
This course is taught by trained meteorologist Jim Woodmencey.
