Fundamentals of Weather 2016

We are very pleased to announce that we will be offering the CPS Fundamentals of Weather Course this winter with Alan Nourse, CPS Instructor of the Year 2014-2015.

This course starts at 6 pm Wednesday, January 20th 2016 and runs for 8 weeks.

This course covers many aspects of the formation and behaviour of the weather around us.  Meteorology is quite technical in nature, whereas Fundamentals of Weather is presented in a clear, straight forward manner that eliminates much of the jargon.

The study of weather is both fascinating and satisfying.  The skills you will develop from this course will serve you for a lifetime.  With practice, you will be able to make short term forecasts – challenge the professionals as to who better predicts the weather in your local area.

Covers basic weather knowledge, atmosphere, clouds, pressure, wind, temperature, moisture, stability and instability, air masses, frontal weather, precipitation, fog, general circulation, tropical hurricanes, wave theory and forecasting.
