Webinar: Severe Weather on the Water

April 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Maine is not necessarily known for severe thunderstorms when compared to places like the Great Plains, but severe storms do occur and are most frequent during the summer months when many are out recreating on the water. In this presentation, Meteorologist Derek Schroeter with the National Weather Service will cover the ingredients that are necessary for thunderstorms to develop, what makes a thunderstorm severe vs. just a run of the mill thunderstorm, and discuss the hazards of severe thunderstorms such as microbursts, squall lines, large hail, and tornadoes. This presentation will also cover resources recreators can use to make sound decisions when venturing out on the water for the day and how to know when a particular day may lead to a severe weather outbreak.
