NSSL Learning Resources
Learn about thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, lightning, floods, damaging winds and severe winter weather. What is a wall cloud? What's the difference between a watch and a warning? Is it ever “too cold to snow”?
Information you can use: about severe weather safety, storm and weather data, games for the kids, educational programs and opportunities, and more.
NSSL’s HotSeat Warning Simulator is an educational tool for all ages. This tool is intended to provide participants with an appreciation of the meteorology of severe weather events and the decision-making process that goes into NWS warnings. (Beta version: in development.)
