Due to the topography, the weather in the Valley can be unique. We'll start with some basic meteorology, learning about warm and cold fronts, and basic weather concepts from the jet stream to low and high pressure. We'll move on to severe weather, tropical weather, and winter weather. Each topic will include history and specifics for the Shenandoah Valley. We'll also talk about forecasting, and some general forecasting for the area.

Instructor: Chief Meteorologist Aubrey Urbanowicz is an award winning Meteorologist at WHSV. Aubrey has been in the Valley for eight years and holds the seal of approval from the National Weather Association. She has covered tornadoes, major winter storms, flooding, and wildfires, as well as daily weather forecasting for the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding area.
