Saturday, Nov. 1
We all know that the meteorologists and staff at the National Weather Center in Norman have an important job in bringing warnings to those in harm’s way due to extreme weather. This is the chance to get behind-the-scenes knowledge of how things work at the NWC. The National Weather Festival will showcase the state-of-the-art facilities, including the National Weather Service forecast operation areas and the brand-new Radar Innovations Laboratory. Hourly weather balloon launches will be performed by Oklahoma City TV meteorologists. There will also be robot demonstrations and other emergency vehicle displays. The fun begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 1, at the National Weather Center, 120 David L. Boren Blvd., in Norman. For more information, visit www.nwc.ou.edu.
