Greetings all!

It's that time of year again when NWS offices around the country start preparing for the upcoming spring severe weather season. With that comes Skywarn Storm Spotter classes that are always informative and fun to attend. You can find your local in person or online training events at https://www.skywarn.org/local-classes/.

For those in the Huntsville, AL area, we are planning an informal meet and greet at the NWS Huntsville Spotter Training event at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center on March 14, 2019 at 6:00 pm. If you have attended this training before, please note that the location is now the National Geographic Theater located in the Davidson Center for Space Exploration. That means we have been upgraded to the large 350 seat auditorium with the huge screen I've always wanted to watch Twister on.

Our TalkWeather meet and greet event will take place between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm. We will have dedicated table space for the FREE Biergarten event that takes place in the museum area. German food and a cash bar will available as well. So come out and join us some fun and fellowship along with a spotter refresher.

Leave a post below if you are planning on attending. Look forward to meeting everyone that makes it.

I will make plans to be there if possible! IIRC there's going to be a Huntsville AMS social as well at the Biergarten ahead of the spotter training as well, so if I'm there I'll be bouncing between two tables.

Just confirmed we with have two tables available to us. Just look for the signs on the tables. I encourage everyone to come out, meet each other and get a refresher on storm spotting from NWS Huntsville. No charge to attend, food available for purchase AND you get free access to the Saturn V hall.

Actually I was hoping it wasn’t part of the Meet and Greet because it’s Easter Weekend and I couldn’t make it!
