Farmers and ranchers, people who work outdoors, and people who enjoy outdoor recreation all constantly seek information about weather. All of these people are regular users of TV weather forecasts and apps on smart phones that provide daily updates of the most current forecast of the weather changes expected. However, seldom do you ever get detailed information on why the changes are expected. This week’s featured video was published by the National Weather Service (NWS) Office in Tallahassee, Florida. In the video, Jeanie McDermott, NWS Meteorologist, explains the basic forces that influence weather patterns in different seasons of the year. Meteorology is a very detailed science but this video provides some of the basic concepts that help meteorologists develop short-term forecasts.
