The past decade has been characterized by remarkable advances in meteorological observation, computing techniques, and data-visualization technology. However, the benefit of these advances can only be fully realized with the introduction of a systematic, applied approach to meteorological education that allows well-established theoretical concepts to be applied to modernized observational and numerical datasets. Designed for use with the companion textbook, Midlatitude Synoptic Meteorology, this lab manual takes just such an educational approach. Its exercises and supplemental information guide students to use contemporary observation and computing techniques to create forecasts, and reinforce lessons on synoptic-dynamic meteorology, synoptically-driven mesoscale phenomena, numerical weather prediction, ensemble prediction, and more. The textbook, lecture slides, and lab manual were developed to be used in concert, with topics considered in an order that reinforces and builds upon new knowledge in meteorological observation and forecasting, week to week.
