I've always had an interest in Meteorology. I've seen Intro to Meteorology classes at the community college that I used to attend and I'm not sure if the 4-year university that I'm at has any classes on the topic. Anyways, I feel that I'd learn best (and at a decent pace) if I were to self-teach myself, per-say.

Can you guys recommend any books, textbooks and/or websites that I can check out to (eventually) get started?

Thanks!

Not sure what you're looking for, but I've following blogs written by knowledgeable authors will place ideas as it mentions weather events. I can't think of any at the moment. For more technical stuff, course websites are good.

And I suppose learning about thunderstorms wouldn't hurt either since they are interconnected.

Thanks.

In other words, you don't know of any? Not sure why you bothered posting then. Mind you, I wasn't looking for just websites in particular.

Do you know of any that I can check out? Google hasn't helped out much in that search.
