Great educational video showing the different EF rating categories and the destruction they can cause.

"After a destructive tornado occurs, the NWS surveys the damage to estimate the tornado's wind speeds. The tornadoes are then rated by their intensity using the EF scale or Enhanced Fujita scale from the weakest EF0's to the rare incredibly powerful EF5's. In this video we'll observe examples of each as well as the damage each rated tornado can cause."

This 5 minute tutorial covers some basic cloud types. Four core cloud categories are discussed, as well as some combinations or hybrids across these categories. Visual depictions of the varying cloud types are shown with an inclusion of time lapse photography to illustrate the formation and dissipation of the clouds.

CoCoRaHS is an acronym for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.  CoCoRaHS is a unique, non-profit, community-based network of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds working together to measure and map precipitation (rain, hail and snow).   By using low-cost measurement tools, stressing training and education, and utilizing an interactive Web-site, our aim is to provide the highest quality data for natural resource, education and research applications.

This video describes how and why certain regions of a jet streak lead to upward or downward vertical motion. Futhermore, it describes how these jet regions came majorly into play during the Blizzard of 2016 and Hurricane Sandy.

There COMET courses are all free. All you have to do is create an account. 

Greetings,
The COMET® Program is pleased to announce the publication of the new two-lesson "Frontal Diagnosis Course”. The course is intended to increase learners’ abilities to correctly identify different types of cold fronts and effectively diagnose their characteristics, both conceptually and from observed satellite data. The two short lessons compare and contrast three different types of fronts: Classic/Stacked fronts, Katabatic fronts, and Anabatic fronts. Throughout the lessons, learners must analyze and categorize all three types of front, along with dry conveyor belt pulses.

 

The intended audience for the "Frontal Diagnosis Course” includes operational forecasters, researchers, students and others interested in increasing their capabilities to identify and diagnose aspects of these three different cold frontal types in order to bring more value to their frontal analyses and forecasts. Please follow the links to the MetEd description page that provides additional information as well as the links to begin the lessons.
