If you understand the basics of weather and are looking forward to understanding more about weather maps and how to use them, this presentation is for you. I will show you where you can access these maps and how best to interpret the data on them. Typical weather charts are in 4 panels; Surface, 500mb, 700mb and thickness/precipitation. Each one of these panels can be useful for different aspects of your weather planning. I will show you what you can decipher from each. I will also touch on other weather maps that we create for mariners. This presentation will allow for 10-15 minutes at the end to discuss and understand user requirements.
