Coming Up in GLCCSchool: Understanding and Avoiding Thunderstorms

dancline - May 13, 2020

Thunderstorms can quickly spoil an outing in many ways—strong winds, large waves, dangerous lightning, waterspouts, or visibility-limiting rain. On Wednesday and Thursday, May 6 and 7, at 7:30 pm Eastern/6:30 pm Central, meterologist Mark Thornton, in this in-depth two-session webinar will examine the various types of thunderstorms and the ingredients that lead to their formation. This webinar is designed for everyone who enjoys watersports (powerboaters, sailors, and paddlers) who would like to reduce their chances of a hair-raising or windswept encounter with a thunderstorm. It will explore why thunderstorms often ‘pop-up’ late on summer afternoons and why some storms have short life-spans while others persist for several hours. The two sessions will also introduce the many readily-available resources for forecasting and monitoring thunderstorms. Be sure to see Understanding and Avoiding Thunderstorms.
