Ventura, CA — National Weather Service Meteorologist Ryan Kittell will provide a path to understanding marine weather forecasts, observations, and phenomena associated with the Santa Barbara Channel at a May 9 at 7:00 lecture.

Before starting his 15 year career with the National Weather Service in Oxnard, California, Kittell received a master’s degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from the University of California, Los Angeles. Kittell grew up in Redondo Beach, California, where he spent much of his youth on the ocean fishing and working as a deckhand.
