Ted Shapiro

The weather on Wednesday night (6/11) was just what you might expect when you have a meteorologist coming to speak at the library. We had intense showers, big storm clouds, a double rainbow, and a dramatic sunset. Those who attended the talk by WAGMTV's chief meteorologist, Ted Shapiro, certainly learned quite a bit about weather clues.

Some of the weather sites Ted went to during his talk were:
NOAA Photo Library (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)
National Weather Service Historical Photos
National Weather Service Caribou Maine

Ted will be teaching an Introduction to Meteorology course at University of Maine at Presque Isle this fall. The course number is EDU 186 and class will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:40-2:55 beginning September 2nd. The course in open to all interested parties. Maine residents 65 and older can take the course for free (only fees are for textbooks).
For additional information, contact Ted at 764-4461 x261.

Another site you may enjoy is the National Weather Service Online School for Weather.
