We all want to know the answer to that question, especially this time of the year. Tom Rosmond will discuss how modern weather prediction tries to answer it and show some of the science and technology used to support those weather predictions.  Rosmond will also discuss the accuracy of today’s weather predictions and suggest ways it could be enhanced and improved.

Rosmond is a consultant for the Naval Research Laboratory, the Marine Meteorology Division. He previously worked at the Naval Research Laboratory and at University of California, Fresno. Rosmond attend the University of Washington, graduating with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Oceanography and doctoral degree Atmospheric Sciences.

Rosmond grew up in Forks and graduated from Forks High School. During school breaks, he worked in his family-owned business, Rosmond Brothers Lumber Company, a prolific lumber mill for 38 years that operated on the current site of the 101 Business Park.

Evening Talks at ONRC is supported by the Rosmond Forestry Education Fund, an endowment that honors the contributions of Fred Rosmond and his family to forestry and the Forks community.
