“An Introduction to Modern Weather Prediction: Is It Going to Rain or Maybe Snow?” will be presented at the center at 1455 S. Forks Ave. at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17.
Participants are asked to bring snacks to share.
Tom Rosmond, a consultant for the Naval Research Laboratory, Marine Meteorology Division, will discuss how modern weather prediction tries to answer that question and show some of the science and technology used to support weather predictions.
Rosmond, a Forks High School graduate, also will discuss the accuracy of today’s weather predictions and suggest ways it could be enhanced and improved.
Rosmond previously worked at the Naval Research Laboratory and at University of California, Fresno. He graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in oceanography and a doctorate in atmospheric sciences.
During high school breaks, Rosmond worked in the family-owned business, Rosmond Brothers Lumber Co., a lumber mill that for 38 years operated on the current site of the 101 Business Park.
Evening Talks at ONRC is supported by the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community.
