Weather Wonders, and More. Meteorology and the Science of Weather

The Shenandoah Valley is known for its sometimes odd weather. Do the mountains really protect the area? Meteorology is a fascinating topic and in weather, there is never a boring day. We will look at some basic meteorology processes which influence the weather in the Shenandoah Valley and also a little weather history in the area. We'll talk about the structures of storm systems, air masses, and weather patterns. Approved for 10 hours Advanced Training for the Headwaters Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalist Program.
