The Great Lakes influence our weather, and the weather can have a great influence on the Great Lakes (ever hear of the Great Storm of 1913?). Join NOAA National Weather Service meteorologists on a cruise that explores the “why?” behind the wind, waves, and weather around us. Learn how to be safe the next time weather threatens, what some of the old sailor sayings like “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight” really mean, why we don’t have hurricanes in the Great Lakes, what kind of wave a “seiche” is, and much more! We ship out rain or shine!
