Getting Ready for Another Summer of Florida Flying Weather!
Are you ready for a summer of Florida flying? The NWS will review what we need to know in order to have a safe season of flying.
Date and Time:
Thursday, April 15, 2021, starting at 19:00 Eastern Daylight Time (16:00 PDT; 17:00 MDT; 18:00 CDT; 13:00 HST; 15:00 AKDT; 16:00 Arizona; 23:00 GMT)
Tony Cristaldi, Senior Forecaster at NWS-Melbourne
Brief Description:

Our friend, Tony Cristaldi, Senior Forecaster from the National Weather Service - Melbourne, will discuss the NWS' role in providing aviation products and services, not only at a national level, but more importantly for us, at the local level, including the history of aviation services at NWS Melbourne. Tony will give us a primer on Florida summer thunderstorms geared for pilots, discuss coverage and distribution patterns of storms and how these patterns are dependent upon variations in temperature, moisture, wind regimes, based largely on the position of the subtropical high pressure ridge. Especially important for new and old pilots alike, Tony will discuss recognition and avoidance of hazardous weather types.
