I just finished reading the National Weather Association’s (NWA) July 2016 newsletter. Of interest in there was a link to the Sol Hirsch grant, which grants money to folks who are doing K-12 outreach programs related to weather. I may put one of these together for one of the schools where I serve as a tutor.
Also, they mentioned that this is the 70th Anniversary of the Thunderstorm project, where we gained quite a bit of understanding on how thunderstorms form and what happens inside of them once they get going. This involved flying aircraft through a number of thunderstorms in a vertical grid to get a profile of a storm. Amazing stuff!
