Weather Discussion Webpage

In my Advanced Synoptic course I will be having my students lead a 20-minute weather discussion each class.  I made myself a webpage that goes through the links that a person might show during a basic, but comprehensive weather discussion.  I think this skeleton structure will help keep my discussions more organized and help my students as well.  I thought I'd share this with you.  If you follow the links from top to bottom and do what they say, it will familiarize you with the sorts of things we like to look at as weather weenies. I think many meteorologists have their favorite webpages they use to forecast, but these are mine.  I am biased to the maps I used at the University of Wisconsin when I first learned how to give a weather discussion back in 2004, so you'll see their map style pop up throughout my links.


Here's a snip of the top of the page...
... and so on.
