WX00201-b, Marine Weather Basics, is the first of a series of four marine weather classes tailored for Great Lakes cruising boaters and offered for either individual or specially priced package registration.
Becoming a weather savvy mariner requires familiarity with a few basic physical and meteorological principles. This webinar, the first of four classes offered individually and as a specially priced package, builds a solid Marine Weather foundation for the remainder of the classes in this series. Among the foundation skills covered in this webinar are the basics behind weather systems along with the skills for interpreting and understanding surface weather charts as forecasting tools. To the untrained eye these weather charts often appear as a confusing array of labels, timekeeping systems, symbols, and other meteorological shorthand. However, once demistified, those same charts reveal a treasure trove of forecasting information to help you plan safe passages throughout the Great Lakes. Whether you cruise, race, fish or simply enjoy spending your liesure time on the water you'll find the marine weather basics offered by this class invaluable.
