LearnWeather is an educational set of tutorials on various weather phenomena published by Severe Weather Europe. Tutorials will cover all kinds of weather, from winter to summer, and from the basic to intermediate and advanced levels throughout the learning process.

The Severe Thunderstorms section, for example, will deal with how and why thunderstorms form, underlying mechanisms, and storm initiation. We will be taking a detailed look at various environmental factors and parameters that influence thunderstorm type, morphology, longevity, and severity.

The learning process will include visual storm structure identification, typical visually identifiable features, recognition of general thunderstorm morphology, and distinguishing between storm types and subtypes.
