The goals of ATM 311 are to teach you the fundamental processes associated with meso-scale and synoptic-scale meteorological phenomena such as tropical cyclones, thunderstorms, and tornadoes. You will also further your forecasting expertise from what you learned in ATM 211.

As a part of this course, you will be making your own short- and long-term forecasts for Albany, NY in our local forecasting competition. Each week, your forecasts will be discussed in detail in a group setting during your lab section.
