While there is still snow on the ground, National Weather Service forecasters are preparing for the upcoming storm season.
Among their preparations is scheduling storm identification and safety presentations to help prepare storm watchers 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 different types of storms, characteristics of individual storms that help a person recognize the potential severity of storms, how to report dangerous weather conditions, and severe weather safety,” he noted the NWS team on the NWS-Wichita website.
