The Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) and the Cooperative Program for Operational Meteorology, Education and Training (COMET®) are hosting the 2012 Winter Weather Course from October 22-November 2, 2012. It is being held at the COMET classroom facilities in Boulder, Colorado, USA. As in years past, the course continues to be an important component of the MSC/COMET training partnership working to build stronger links between atmospheric research and operational weather forecasting.
Representatives from all MSC Regions as well as Defence Weather Services will participate. Representatives from the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) will also attend along with a few others from outside of North America. Course instructors include professors from leading Canadian and U.S. universities as well as experts from both the MSC and the NWS.
The main focus of the course is winter season significant weather, from the synoptic scale to the mesoscale. The ultimate goal of the course is to increase your understanding of phenomena and atmospheric processes associated with winter weather.
