Welcome, Weather Experts!

We at Weather Central need your help. Plans are being finalized for the annual New Year’s Eve celebration in New York’s City’s Times Square. Since nor’easters are common along the East Coast of the United States, event officials have asked us for timely, accurate weather forecasts. They will use our reports to decide whether to hold this event.

Several conditions determine the weather: air pressure, fronts, temperature, dew point, winds, and clouds. As a meteorologist, you use maps, graphs, and charts to study these conditions. Then you make a prediction.

First learn more about nor’easters. Then go to your team area to learn more about how to do your job. We at Weather Central look forward to working with you. Good luck.
