Second, extremely helpful site for theories and terminology is Haby Hints from theweatherprediction.com site

Best site out there for learning on multiple levels of meteorology unfortunately doesnt have everything you would want to find about but probably the best for those trying to learn. I can list some of the ones that we used in class if I remember later on.
