Weather Course for Boaters

Where, Why , How & what you can do about it

Learn about predicting weather I n your boating environment. Learn how to predict weather at sea where there are no forecasts.

USPS’s Weather course teaches the following topics in eight 2 hour sessions. We meet Mondays 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM starting March 23. Here’s the topics we will cover:

  • What a barometer tells you
  • How does the jet stream really work?
  • Hurricanes, and how to avoid them
  • Why does it snow when it’s above freezing?
  • Al about lightening
  • How do I predict weather from clouds?

All this, and much more. You don’t need a science background to attend, and all concepts will be presented in an easy to understand manor. Interested people can obtain USPS Educational credit via a multiple choice test at the end of the course.

Mondays at 6:30 PM at the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, 217 Water Street by the South Street Seaport. Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for details
