An event for weather enthusiasts is coming to Salina.
National Weather Service meteorologists have finished up their schedule of annual spring severe weather safety and spotter classes. For those people who want to learn even more, a special advanced session will be offered this year.
An advanced spotter presentation is a rare event, not offered annually. The last time an advanced session was offered was five years ago.
The advanced session goes much more more in-depth. Rather than focusing on the basics of thunderstorm development, storm structure, the features to look for like the basic session does the advanced session is more science based. It will concentrate on the science behind severe weather, and the science behind weather forecasting.
According to Saline County Emergency Management, the class will be a high-level presentation on storm formations, features, and radar interpretation.
A advanced spotter session will be presented by the Wichita National Weather Service on Tuesday in Salina. It will start at 6:30 at the Salina South High School Auditorium. Like the basic session, the advanced session is free and open to the public. No pre-registration is required.
