Meteorologists Preparing For “Storm Fury”
KSAL Staff - January 17, 2016 11:10 am
Meteorologists from the National Weather Service are preparing for a kind of barnstorming tour. They are getting ready to head out across the state to present severe weather safety and information talks.
According to the National Weather Service in Wichita, they will again this year present “Storm Fury on the Plains.” The presentation will include information that will help prepare storm spotters and weather enthusiasts for the upcoming storm season. Staff will provide an in depth weather presentation that will engage the audience by teaching them about the different types of storms, the individual storm features that help a person to recognize a storms potential severity, how to report hazardous weather, and severe weather safety.
According to the National Weather Service in Topeka, their presentations will focus on severe storm safety, preparedness, and awareness. Storm structure and accurate identification of important cloud features associated with super-cell and squall line thunderstorms will also be touched on.
The presentations are hosted by local county Emergency Management agencies and typically last up to two hours. They are open to anyone that has an interest in weather. There are no fees to attend, you do not have to register, and you do not have to sign up to be a spotter.
Anyone interested in learning more about severe thunderstorms and their hazards is encouraged to come out for an interesting and enjoyable evening.
The presentations begin in February, and are scheduled through early April. The presentation in Salina is scheduled for Monday, March 7th.
This year, several advanced sessions that go more in-depth will also be offered. One of those will be in Salina, on April 6th.
