Learn a little weather forecasting and reduce the uncertainty of boating on the Great Lakes.

With these skills, you can: - Improve your decision-making for family outings. - Enhance your confidence in planning long-distance journeys. - Improve your racing performance. - Reduce the likelihood of being exposed to uncomfortable or hazardous weather conditions. What you can expect to learn at the seminar: - How to decode the confusing symbols and meteorological shorthand on forecast graphics. - How to predict the development and movement of low pressure systems and their accompanying frontal boundaries. - Why the wind behaves the way it does and how to prepare a detailed wind forecast. - How to prepare a detailed wave height forecast. - How to forecast the potential and nature of severe weather. - The terminology used by the National Weather Service during hazardous and severe weather events. - How to use Doppler weather radar to help you avoid a hair-raising encounter with a thunderstorm. - Where to find forecast graphics and a strategy for preparing a multi-day marine forecast. The workshop combines traditional classroom instruction, case studies and several hands-on forecasting exercises to create an engaging learning experience.
