FROM A-B TECH's INSTITUTE FOR CLIMATE EDUCATION
The Institute for Climate Education at A-B Tech will host a seminar on the winter forecast for Western North Carolina at 6 p.m. Dec. 6 in Ferguson Auditorium on the College’s Asheville campus. The talk is free and open to the public.
“The Long-Range Winter Forecast for Western North Carolina” will be presented by Meteorologist Tom Ross. “Winter weather can have a profound impact on our lives and on the investments that we’ve made in our landscaping and crops,” Ross said. “We’ll look at the global weather patterns to see if another harsh winter could be in store for our region.” There will be a question-and-answer session following Ross’ presentation.
“We’re all interested in getting the scoop about what the coming winter may bring,” said Pamela McCown, coordinator for the Institute for Climate Education. “It’s one of the questions I get asked the most. The last two winters have produced very snowy periods, and while that can be great news for some businesses like ski resorts, it can make it difficult for parents with children in school when schools must close. Our goal is to help people be prepared as best we can.”
The Institute for Climate Education was established at A-B Tech to offer classes, workshops, seminars and other training for the general public about climate and climatology. For more information, visit http://www1.abtech.edu/content/institute-climate-education/overview.Read the full article
