You are aware that the topic for meteorology this year is severe storms, right?

while this is true, he means to ask if there will be very specific questions about historic Florida weather, which there will not be. An invitational test two years ago was the closest I have ever seen this. There were climate questions about local OH climate. And while there will of course be questions about Florida (hurricanes and stuff), it will not be biased so that Florida teams have an advantage over non-Florida teams. This will be my 3rd nationals meteorology test with the same proctor, and she is usually very good at following the full intent of the rules, as is just about every nationals proctor.

So, for next year... climate.... Is this Meteorology Bible that I've heard about a good source for climate? Also, if it is, where can I find it? And regardless of whether it is or isn't, are there any other textbooks I should get? Sorry if this is too early.

Yes, both the Lutgen's book and Meteorology today have some climate in them, but it's mostly Koppen zones.

Edit: koppen + autocorrect don't agree

Yes, both the Lutgen's book and Meteorology today have some climate in them, but it's mostly lopped zones.
I'm sure you haven't bought all of them, but if you have? Which is the best for climate next year? Oh yeah, and Toms, you were the one I met at the pool table!

Has anyone had a question about debris flows or atmospheric rivers on any of their tests?

Not once, although they are clearly listed as hazards to be tested on in the rules.

Wait, now that I remember, we had a question at one of the invites to determine the hazard pictured in the image, and it was a debris flow.
