I haven't seen Derechos on a test, and El Nino isn't supposed to be on there, though I have seen it a few times. Thunderstorms and lightning are pretty general, but yes, you should know about them.

From other Everyday Weather tests, what other topics (other than the ones listed on the Rules Manual) have the tests had? Once, in an invitational, they had a question about hurricanes. Fortunately, it was easy.
"The ________ in a hurricane has the strongest winds or something like that.
It was eye wall.

Know your statistics, such as what estate has the most lightning deaths per year, and CLOUD FORMATIONS!!!!!!

Also I've taken a lot of tests involving dipoles signatures such as a "hook echo." (Anyone have a site with info like that??)

You need to know famous meteorologists sometimes, and the tests WILL bleed into climate/storms. That and history of meteorological studies. (Such as first radar system used for weather prediction)

I made a post on these a while back

What sorts of questions might they ask us about wind chill/heat index?

None of my tests had wind chill or heat index.
Maybe you have to explain what they are.
Or who made the concept of wind chill.

What unusual cloud formations are there?
I put the common cloud types
Altocumulus lenticular
Mammatus
Pyrocumulus
and pileus.
What other clouds should I put in the notes?

You should have a chart showing all the cloud types, it doesn't fill up much space.

What team, at this point in the year, do you guys think is the strongest in meteorology? I really can't tell right now.

I just had States yesterday, and it was run in stations!!! Just think people should be prepared for anything. ( we took first both in meteorology and overall!! We are going to nationals!!!)

Hosj, did you have to identify clouds and optical phenomena at every station? Is that why the test was set up in stations?
