I personally think it's disgusting because they haven't had any of the higher level courses we've had.

Yet they can say they are a meteorologist on TV just because they have a CBM.

Then the general public thinks they're legit.

 

I did look up the requirements for a CBM and they do have to take a number of meteorology courses, but certainly not anywhere near a degree's worth.  I can definitely say that I'd laugh at the prospect of someone taking maybe 1/3 of the advanced chemical eng'g courses and calling themselves a chemical engineer, so I would think most "real" meteorologists (with degrees in meteorology) would feel similarly about the CBM contingent.

The courses they have to take are the easiest courses in the meteorology program and do not involve any of the major equations

I am really glad we that winter is basically behind us now. It didn't live up to expectations and we hope for much better next winter. Looking forward to hopefully getting some good severe/heavy rain events as we head into the spring and summer. The next 10 days look rather quiet so enjoy it.

I sure as hell will. It is shocking to see this place dead when there are no winter threats, though. Speaks to the general consensus that this winter is done, I think.
