Extreme weather topic of Science Café

SEQUIM — Angela Rowe will talk about a study into Argentina’s weather patterns that feature some of the most intense storms in the world at the next Sequim Science Café at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The event will be at Paradise Restaurant, 703 N. Sequim Ave. Event organizers encourage attendees to arrive by 6 p.m. if they want to enjoy a meal and socialize; seating is limited.

Rowe, a research scientist with the University of Washington’s Department of Atmospheric Sciences, will talk about the international RELAMPAGO field campaign, an effort including scientists from the U.S., Argentina and Brazil in analyzing Argentina’s extreme weather.

She will tell why residents of the Pacific Northwest should care about these intense Southern Hemisphere thunderstorms.

The event is sponsored by the Sequim Education Foundation. The group’s mission is “to be a catalyst for vibrant growth of each student in the Sequim community.”
