COVID-19 Update:

Out of an abundance of caution and per the latest CDC guidelines on COVID-19, we are only providing VIRTUAL outreach activities at this time. Stay tuned for future updates on in-person activities and office tours!


The National Weather Service Office in Fairbanks, AK is actively involved in educating the communities we serve in Northern Alaska through our Outreach Program! Currently, we are capable of setting up virtual meetings for groups of all ages interested in weather. Our meteorologists can focus on various topics such as careers in meteorology, weather basics, and general weather safety, to name a few. Below is more information for school/group presentations, with a request form in case you are interested in setting up a virtual lesson!
