Tornado forecasting classes at ChaserCon 2012

As was announced on the ChaserCon 2012 website last month, I'll be teaching 2 tornado forecasting classes on Friday evening , Feb. 17 at ChaserCon in Denver.

The first class deals with Basics (surface maps, upper air maps, and computer model forecasts, from 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm), and the 2nd class is Advanced material (including skew Ts and hodographs, from 9:00 pm to 10:45 pm). Enrollment in advance is required (you also need to be registered for ChaserCon to attend), and each class is $15.00 individually, or $25.00 for both (CASH only at the door, NO CHECKS!).

We're getting close time-wise, and class enrollments are filling up, so send an e-mail to Roger Hill at or to me directly at to enroll. Please specify which class you will be attending (Basics, Advanced, or both)

Tim Vasquez from Norman OK has taught the forecasting classes in the past. Even though he's not teaching this year, he will have a vendor table at ChaserCon to sell his forecasting books and materials, which are excellent storm chasing resources. Tim also continues to do chase forecasting classes in Norman, another great way to learn about severe weather forecasting! So if you are going to ChaserCon, stop by his vendor table and check out his stuff! Or, check out his web site at

See you at ChaserCon!
