A “Storm Fury On The Plains” will roll into Salina this week. National Weather Service Meteorologist Chance Hayes will be in town to present the agency’s annual spring severe weather safety and spotter classes.
Those who attend will learn the basics of thunderstorm development, storm structure, the features to look for, and where to find them. What, when and how to report information as well as basic severe weather safety are also covered.
According to the Wichita office, their sessions are a multi-media presentation, which includes detailed video. These spotter classes typically take about 1½ to 2 hours, and are open to the public.
The session is free. No prior experience is required, and there is no registration necessary to attend. Anyone who has an interest in severe weather is encouraged to attend.
The Salina session is scheduled for Wednesday evening at 6:30 at the Salina South High School Theatre.
