This semester the Ken Reeves Memorial Weather Briefings will continue on Thursdays at 12:45 pm in the Joel N. Myers Weather Center on the 6th floor of Walker. For those of you who are new or unfamiliar these briefings are a great way to keep up with the past, current, and future weather with the scientific explanations behind it all. Everyone is invited to attend and only basic meteorological backgrounds are assumed. The briefings offer more detail than you would receive in a standard television/online weathercast, but the talks are informal and questions/commentary are invited and welcomed.
Our first briefing will take place this Thursday (1/16/14) at 12:45 pm with Rich Grumm presenting. Rich is the Science and Operations Officer of the State College National Weather Service office. Rich specializes in high impact weather forecasting and is also the creator of the Eyewall forecast model website (nws.met.psu.edu) that is hosted through our department.
We are in the middle of an active winter pattern with cold air not far away and opportunities for cyclogenesis. Thursday should be a great discussion and Rich will detail statistical applications to looking at forecast model data.
Date/Time: Thursday (1/16) at 12:45 pm.
Place: Joel N. Myers Weather Center
