A chance to visit a weather center and meet a meteorologist

Every wonder how we meteorologists do what we do? Or maybe “What the heck are they doing”? Or, I know, “How did they make such a busted forecast”? Well this weekend is your chance to learn all about weather, weather forecasting, meet many meteorologists, ask questions, watch a forecast being made 

ZZZZZ

and even watch a weather balloon and instruments being launched.

It’s all part of the Open House at the local National Weather Service Forecast Office in Sterling, Virginia this Saturday and Sunday. 

ZZZZZ

Saturday 9:30 AM – 4 PM and Sunday 12:30 PM-4 PM. Here is the link with all the information. Saturday afternoon you probably will be able to watch meteorologists tracking approaching showers on the new Dual-Pol Doppler radar

If you are a student interested in a career in meteorology . . . or a parent with a future meteorologist this is a great opportunity to learn what forecasting is all about. And I’ll be there Saturday morning too.  Hope to see you there.
