Chris Parker Opens Broadcasts as Public Service

Weather router Chris Parker is a longtime speaker at TrawlerFest, including our upcoming event in Baltimore. He is also a leading authority on tropical weather. With Hurricane Dorian barreling toward the Florida coast, Parker is offering his nightly broadcast to customers to the anyone with a computer and a connection so they can listen to his Dorian analysis.

Parker broadcasts his forecast live every evening at 6 and will continue to do so until Dorian is no longer a threat. To watch, visit his Mariner Weather Center Facebook page. The broadcast includes superb interactive graphics. You can watch a recording of last night’s broadcast as well.

This is a great way to see how a weather router operates and get to know Parker himself. If you like what you hear, consider registering for his courses at Baltimore.

First in the line-up is Weather Tips: 20 Facts About Marine Weather You Should Know But Probably Don’t. These tips include how to observe the texture of clouds to gauge whether a thunderstorm is developing, understanding how wind parallels coastline, understanding why wind generally weakens as its direction “backs,” and what it means when it strengthens instead. (Hint: Bad things can happen.)

The other is Weather and Forecast Resources. Learn the best weather apps and how to access them from a variety of devices. Veteran weather router Chris Parker details which weather products (and which parameters) are essential and how to access them via computer, mobile devices and other hardware. You’ll get a look at these apps and websites in real-time so you can compare options.

Parker, a veteran voyager, is also a panelist on the Cruisers Roundtable seminar.
