Greater Milwaukee Chapter of the AMSOrganization in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
From the Chapter President...
UWM Atmospheric Sciences Professor Clark Evans gave us a terrific talk at our April 5 Greater Milwaukee AMS Chapter meeting! His talk reviewed the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season, chronicling in detail the life cycles of three high-impact storms for the United States: Harvey, Irma, and Maria. He highlighted the excellent forecasts from the National Hurricane Center that anticipated these storms, and also addressed the question of the potential impacts of climate change. Several questions came from the engaged audience of more than 50 AMS Chapter members and friends. The speaker and more than a dozen others joined a lively informal gathering afterward at the UWM Gasthaus. Thanks to Professor Evans for his talk, and thanks to all who attended!
