So, what specifically do we need to know for Severe Storms? I haven't gotten the rule book, and I don't know when our school's starting the practices. I want to start right away.

Know basic meteorological concepts. If you did Everyday Weather last year, you should have these down pretty well already. Know the types, characteristics, and hazards/safety procedures of thunderstorms. Types of lightning and its cause. Tornadoes, their development, characteristics, hazards/safety procedures. Types of precipitation and their formation. Tropical cyclones, their formation, characteristics, and hazards/safety procedures. Mid-latitude cyclones, their development, characteristics, and hazards/safety procedures. Be able to analyze and interpret weather maps and other data, including satellite imagery, Doppler radar, etc.

Hopefully this will be enough until you can get your hands on the rules.

Thank you so much!
I did do Everyday Weather, but I didn't do much. In this thread, are we going to be able to discuss Severe Storms? I feel it would be helpful, but I'm not sure if this thread is meant for giving each other questions.
Again, Thanks!

I don't see why not. I know one of my biggest regrets from when I did severe storms is that I didn't start studying earlier, as I missed the Atlantic hurricane season and the greater part of the tornado season.

Thank goodness. My mom really wants me to get a medal in Meterology, seeing how I got 9th all by myself.

The rules usually say "in any form from any source" so I assume the regents reference tables would be allowed. I used information from them in Geomaps last year.

Thanks! But I'm pretty sure I'll be asking questions for people on my team since I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who has an account.

So guys, I was just wondering what you think may be the biggest challenge this year in terms of topics. My partner and I really want to go pretty in-depth about observation (Doppler, etc.) but I was just wonder what was on your 'radar.' :o :lol: :o :lol: :o
