CBYRA Webinar 4/15 7:30 on Weather by National Weather Service -for ALL

Weather: Get a Shiver in your bones just thinking about it?


We can help with that. Join us this Thursday April 15th at 7:30 pm for a webinar with Steve Zubrick and Brandon Fling from the National Weather Service.

BTW, this one is FREE AND OPEN to the entire CBYRA community, members and non-members alike.

The 15 April presentation will focus on what it means to be part of a Weather-Ready Nation. What this means is that Society is prepared for and responds to weather, water, and climate-dependent events. Read more about what this means to you at Your National Weather Service: Evolving to Build a Weather-Ready Nation.


You will learn more about using the NWS radio based, online and mobile tools so that you can be build an everyday strategy for planning your weather decisions ahead of your day of racing and how to adapt weather tools for intraday tactical weather decisions.

The "Weather Ready Nation" aspects means that well before you put boats on the water, you should understand a few basics:

1) Where can I find the types of NWS forecast and warning products useful for maintaining awareness of potentially hazardous weather that could impact boating,

2) How do I keep abreast of these products, and,

3) What are the proper decisions I make when I'm aware of these hazards?


This last point has meaning for you and your boating associates: what do you do when we issue, say, a special marine warning (or severe thunderstorm warning) that potentially impacts your boating activities?
