Winter Weather Awareness Class 2021

We're excited to once again return our virtual winter weather awareness class for 2021!  This class will help you learn more about the NWS, take a look at the winter 2021-2022 outlook and what you can typically expect out of a winter in the Northern Plains, how to measure and report winter weather to NWS, and many resources to stay up-to-date on the forecast.

Classes will be held virtually through the GoToWebinar platform. While the intended audience is anyone in the Tri-State area, anyone is welcome to join and listen in!  Classes are expected to last up to an hour, and there will also be time for questions.  After classes are held, we'll record and post the virtual awareness session on this webpage.
