There are many different groups that have indicated interest in coming to the Forecast Office for
tours. Just a few of these include:
School systems (classes/teachers)
Amateur radio groups
Senior citizen groups
Weather spotter groups
Tour Scheduling: For large groups with over 10 people, we ask that you keep
the age limit to 10 years and older.
For smaller groups, all ages are acceptable and can more easily be accommodated. We recommend that
there be at least one adult for every 3 children under the age of 10.
The best time to request a tour is between the hours of 10:00 am and Noon, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm, and
after 5:00 pm. Other times may be scheduled if necessary. During the spring and summer months,
please try to keep tour requests to the early morning hours.
*Please Note: Tours may be cancelled, if necessary, because of weather, staffing shortage,
or changes to the terror alert threat level. Because of occasional unforeseen circumstances, some
tours may need to be cancelled at the last minute. We will make arrangements to re-schedule the tour
as soon as possible, or can offer a weather presentation instead.
