The second of Marine Weather University's eight class course designed to improve your weather skills. Available as a single class or part of the complete course. In this class we zoom in close - to explore the connection between clouds and wind. For centuries sailors have known that the clouds hold clues to the wind. Science has enhanced that knowledge. We'll look at both the subjective and the objective side of this fascinating subject.
