This is big news!
How would you like to attend a two-day weather workshop where you’ll learn from some of the best weather experts in the business?
The 2010 Kentucky Weather Workshop will be held November 19th and 20th at the Carroll Knicely Center in Bowling Green.
The keynote speaker for the event will be Dr. Greg Forbes, noted severe weather scientist for The Weather Channel.
Alongside Dr. Forbes will be noted meteorologists, scientists, educators, HAM radio operators, aviators, ag specialists and weather spotters.
The workshop is hosted by Kentucky Emergency Management to provide detailed and technical processes used for understanding weather forecasting and modeling. The workshop is open to anyone interested in learning more about weather forecasting and storm spotting.
If you sign up before October 20th, the registration fee is only $20 but will go up after that date. With your registration, you will receive a workshop t-shirt along with a lunch for Friday, dinner Friday night and lunch again on Saturday.
A full agenda has not been set as of this writing but I am working closely with KyEM officials to finalize the schedule of events and presentations.
Yours truly will be making a presentation Saturday the 20th along with meteorologist Jennifer Rukavina from WPSD Channel 6 in Paducah discussing severe weather watch and warning criteria and the many new ways we now have to track and monitor storms.
I will be posting updates here on the workshop, so keep checking back often for the final agenda and any further announcements. In the meantime, if you want to join us, registration is limited to only 300 people and these will go fast – so click on the workshop link below and get signed up today!
