Over 50 students from 4 counties here for weather class
By Greg Thomas, Director
Adair County Emergency Management
Adair County Emergency Management sponsored an Advance Weather Spotters Class this past Thursday night, April 15, 2010, which was taught by the National Weather Service out of Louisville, Kentucky.
The class was attended by over 50 people from Adair, Taylor, Green, and Barren Counties.
This class went over atmospheric conditions for thunderstorm development such as the way low and high presures work to create updrafts and downbursts.
Multicell Cluster, Multicell Line, and Supercell Storms were all explained.
Supercell Storms pose the highest threat and are the rarest of the three.
Examples were shown of wall clouds, shelf clouds, and scud clouds and students were show what to look for in the roation to tell if a tornado could be forming. -Greg Thomas
