On Board Weather Analysis

Basic Weather and Forecasting SeminarIn this seminar students will learn the meteorological basis for marine weather forecasting and how to display weather information on a chartplotter using satellite weather. The safety and comfort of those who venture out-on-the-water have always been weather dependent. This seminar is a must for boaters who have never taken a weather course. The complex subject of weather is presented in a way that is both understandable and useful. Topics include:

  • Air Masses and Fronts;
  • Winds;
  • Storms;
  • Clouds and Thunderstorms;
  • Fog; and
  • Forecasting

In addition we will discuss weather overlays for chartplotters and MFD's using satellite weather receivers such as Sirius XM. The weather overlay superimposes weather and weather-related information on the Navigation chart, the Fishing chart, and the Perspective 3D chart view. The Navigation chart can show weather radar, height of cloud tops, lightning, weather buoys, county warnings, and hurricane warnings and weather radar.
