A “Storm Fury” is coming to Salina this week.
Meteorologists from the National Weather Service have started their annual barnstorming-type tour to help prepare storm spotters and weather enthusiasts for the upcoming severe weather season. They have been heading out across the state presenting severe weather safety and information talks.
The National Weather Service in Wichita is presenting the “Storm Fury on the Plains” presentation. It includes an in depth weather presentation that engages the audience by teaching about the different types of storms, the individual storm features that help a person to recognize a storm’s potential severity, how to report hazardous weather, and severe weather safety.
According to the National Weather Service in Topeka, their presentations focus on severe storm safety, preparedness, and awareness. Storm structure and accurate identification of important cloud features associated with supercell and squall line thunderstorms are also 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 are scheduled through early April. The presentation in Salina is scheduled for this Thursday, February 23rd, at Sam’s Chapel in Pioneer Hall on the campus of Kansas Wesleyan University.
Members of the KSAL / Rocking M Media Severe Weather team will be at the Salina presentation and will giveaway a weather radio.
