What causes tornadoes? Where and when are hurricanes most common? What's the difference between sleet and freezing rain? If you like storms -- or if you're terrified of them and want to learn more about them -- this is the place for you.

Office hours: to be determined

As of 16 November, our class for Spring 2018 is completely full. There is no way to accommodate additional students unless someone drops the course -- there are no extra seats in the room! My advice: stay on the wait list as long as you can, and jump in if there is an opening. I'll update this page if have learn new information.
There is nothing to buy! We'll use the "JetStream" website, provided by the National Weather Service. In addition, I'll provide numerous handouts and additional readings. (Hint: get a three-ring binder.)
Go check out our Syllabus if you want all the gory details about all aspects of our course.
We'll look at national and local current weather almost daily during the course. I bet you already know how to interpret these images!
We'll use a combination of this website and Canvas for the course this semester. If that gets to be too confusing or too cumbersome, we'll adjust as needed. The Canvas page will be made live around mid-December.
