Brewing Storms -- Understanding Our Earth With UCAR


Brewing Storms

A lot of the weather with a big local impact comes in smaller-sized packages. That relatively small size makes thunderstorms, tornadoes and local blizzards much harder to predict than big winter storms or hurricanes that can be tracked over several days. National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) scientist Morris Weisman explains how advances are revealing the fine-scale structure of storms and improving forecasts. NCAR is sponsored by NSF and managed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).
