Coming Soon - Aviation Weather Observing Course
Smalltown Weather is excited to introduce an up-and-coming course on Aviation Weather Observing. This course will be specifically aimed at those who want a deeper understanding of how weather fits into the aviation industry and exactly how to observe the current weather conditions and encode them into meteorological aviation reports (METARs). Following successful completion of this class, each student may move forward with pursing a career with the FAA (or contractor) observing weather at commercial airports - with pay ranging from $12/hr to over $40/hr.
Cloud Types - What They Mean
Look Up (at the sky), Not Down (at your smartphone weather app). Cirrus, Cumulus, Stratus, and Nimbus - that doesn't even begin to cover what you can discover about the atmosphere by taking a peak up at the sky.
Weather Radar - What It's Really Telling You
Those colors mean something, and so does the shape of the storm. See how meteorologists determine between severe weather on the radar and an ordinary rain shower.
First Responder Training
One-of-a-kind classes tailored for first responders of all types - Law Enforcement, Fire Department, Utility Company, Non-Profits, and everyone in-between. Knowing how the weather works is the key to successful response.
