Interested in learning more about our office and the job we perform?
Our office conducts tours for small groups (generally 25 or less). However, due to increased security requirements, some limitations on the availability of office tours have been implemented. Impromptu tours are not provided. Groups must coordinate tour requests with the staff, and will require a valid picture ID from the tour leader. A list of tour participants must be presented at the start of the tour.
For more information contact Todd S (Warning Coordination Meteorologist) during regular business hours, M-F from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at (608) 784-7294.
Other tour guidelines:
A 'typical' office tour includes...
Tours typically last around 45 minutes but can be shortened or extended depending on topics requested and covered. Tours can also be modified depending on the needs of the group and educational interest.
Tours of our Doppler radar tower (Radome) are not permitted due to safety concerns.
NOTE: As mentioned above, severe or inclement weather may cause us to cancel scheduled tours. In most cases, they can be rescheduled. Staffing limitations typically dictate tour availability.
