Course Description

Weather is of interest to everyone because we experience weather every day. There is much about meteorology (the science of weather) that can be appreciated and enjoyed from wherever you are. After introducing the Earth's position in the solar system and the structure of its atmosphere, we’ll talk about surface phenomena (weather zones, prevailing winds, high- and low-pressure systems, fronts, storms and jet streams). We’ll also explore weather lore, including “tricks” the farmers of old used to predict weather and other simple observational methods for talking and thinking about weather.
