Info on #FLRainorShine course  (first question is where do you get your weather forecast from?)

We hope you’ll enjoy reading the articles, watching the various videos, animations and joining in with courses discussions and activities. After completing this 3 week course you will be able to:

Describe the weather features associated with depressions, anticyclones and the four main air masses which affect the UK.

Interpret a synoptic chart (also known as a weather chart) to provide details about wind speed and direction, precipitation and cloud cover.

Describe some of the physical processes which give rise to weather, such as convection, condensation, pressure gradients and the Coriolis force.

Investigate local weather conditions using readily available instruments.

Explain some of the processes which transfer energy through the Earth system, including the transient effects of volcanoes and changes in the Earth’s orbit, and how these processes relate to the Earth’s climate.

Apply your understanding of mid-latitude weather systems to the analysis of weather data and images.

I completely missed the original post/link, otherwise I would have signed up.  However, in the interim I registered for the OU course, SG089 - Science: the weather. It is a short (6mth), non-credit bearing course which assumes no previous knowledge of the subject and is self-assessed.  I'm around half way through and enjoying the materials.  My only possible criticism is whether or not it is value for money, but I'll suspend judgement in that regard until I have completed the course.
