This coming Friday, January 17, at 6:30 p.m., the Olympic Natural Resources Center in Forks, Wash., will be hosting the fourth installment of its new speaker series, Evening Talks at ONRC.
This month, ONRC is pleased to welcome Tom Rosmond, a consultant for the Naval Research Laboratory, Marine Meteorology Division. In his talk, “An Introduction to Modern Weather Prediction: Is it going to rain or maybe snow?” Rosmond will discuss how modern weather prediction tries to answer this age-old question, and he’ll show some of the science and technology used to support weather predictions. He’ll also discuss the accuracy of today’s weather predictions and suggest ways it could be enhanced and improved.
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. He later attended the University of Washington, graduating with a bachelor’s and master’s in Oceanography, and a doctoral degree Atmospheric Sciences.
The talk is open to the public, and you are welcome to bring a favorite snack to share—or just eat up the presentation this Friday at 6:30 p.m.!
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. For more information about ONRC or the speaker series, contact Ellen Matheny.
