Cool! I haven't gone because the classes are always a haul, but these are nearby for me.

The lead meteorologist from Upton does the class...basically goes over types of severe weather clouds...wall cloud, shelf cloud etc. talks about what they need reported to them as far as storm damage, flooding. Pretty basic stuff, but something they need help with to compile data. They are going to have advanced classes as well, but only in CT and LI
