A Storm Identification and Safety Presentation

2024 Schedule



Meteorologists from the National Weather Service office in Wichita will be presenting information that will help prepare storm spotters and weather enthusiasts for the upcoming storm season. Our staff will provide an in depth weather presentation that will engage the audience by teaching them about the different types of storms, the individual storm features that help a person to recognize the storms potential severity, how to report hazardous weather and severe weather safety.

Please keep an eye on the schedule as me may once again offer a virtual presentation option. If we decide to offer a virtual presentation, the dates and times for these presentations will be displayed below.
