What team, at this point in the year, do you guys think is the strongest in meteorology? I really can't tell right now.
The top 5 teams at Wright State were

Solon B
Daniel Wright
Friendship Christan
Shady Side
Meads Mill

These 5 are probably the best.

Strath Haven is really good. I had to go up against them at nationals last year when they got 6th. I would pick them to medal.

Yeah, unfortunately my very talented Meteorology partner (he was the one who got 6th last year) has a conflict with Reach for the Stars, so I'm being sent in with a replacement who picked up the event about a month ago.

However, we did get 2nd at States. We beat Shady Side, who are very good at that event (shout out to Shady Side :) )

I took the Meteorology test from 2010, and it seemed very short and very easy. Last year, I heard that the Meteorology test was very long and hard, so I wonder if it'll be the same test writer from 2010 or the one from last year :?

My team beat Friendship Christian in that event twice, and they won't be going to Nationals. I don't know how well we'll do though.....
I bet you had to read this twice

Does anyone know what they mean by thermodynamic charts?? It says that on the rules, and my partner and I have no idea what that means...

It could mean temperature conversions, or boiling/melting points of substances.

I think the Tephigram and Skew-T are thermodynamic charts. I'm sorry if I'm wrong. :)
For the Tephigram, does anyone know any good sites that I could learn it from?

ReBobville and I did meteorology in B division, and it was one of our favorite events. We decided to write a test this year. I just uploaded it to the test exchange.

I tried to put a variety of questions on the test, and I am pretty sure that everything is correct. Let me know what you think of the test and if you think something might be wrong!

I hope you enjoy the test!

Where did you find the 2010 NATS test? I would also like to look at it. If you could link me, that would be wonderful!

I'm not sure how my coach got it, but I assume the it was from the 2011 Test Packet. You won't find it online, sorry. :(
