Hi all,

Thanks to the team at Walklakes for their excellent weather information page. Its a great format and another source to consider.

If you want to learn a bit more about weather forecasting then consider the following:-

  1. A free to enroll course being offered by Futurelearn starting on the 27th September 2021.

This course is being run jointly by the University of Exeter and the Royal Met Society and from others it seems to be very worthy of consideration. The instructors are both from the Met Office so it should be great.. Details can be found at https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/learn-about-weather

  1. The team from MWIS have uploaded an excellent one hour webinar to Youtube entitled "Key skills in Mountain weather forecasting which is very informative. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbEOplCvjWE

Regards to all
