Forecasting severe convective weather during the monsoon in the Southwest U.S. is often difficult, partly due to weak dynamic forcing mechanisms as well as limited knowledge about factors favoring the growth of convective elements into organized significant weather.

About Our Training Resources
Our training consists of lessons and courses. A lesson is targeted toward one focused subject, whereas a course is a collection of lessons that pertain to a broader subject area. You can receive certificates of completion for both lessons and courses. Courses are entirely self-paced and available for open enrollment. We also list a select set of resources that are not hosted on MetEd that are of high quailty and of interest to our community.
The COMET® Program's virtual classroom provides access to material in support of our residence and virtual courses. These courses are generally available by invitation only and are hosted at our UCAR facility in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
