A Comprehensive Glossary of Weather Terms for Storm Spotters

Michael Branick at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) developed this online weather dictionary for local severe storm spotters and groups. "Its purposes are 1) to achieve some level of standardization in the definitions of the terms that are used, and 2) provide a reference from which the meanings of any terms, especially the lesser-used ones, can be found." The website, which is very easy to navigate, provides educational figures of a supercell, line echo wave pattern, and other weather-related phenomena. With its clear definitions, non-meteorologists and novices will find this website helpful.
