Bring your friends and join us on Saturday, September 7th, for this year’s biggest weather festival: WeatherReady Fest in Huntsville! What makes this event so big? Once a year, hundreds of the nation’s top operational meteorologists come together for the NWA annual meeting at a different city. Kicking off this event is a fun, community-outreach extravaganza: WeatherReady Fest!

With a variety of exciting activities for children and adults alike, you will get to rub shoulders with the nation’s top meteorologists. A fascinating speaker lineup includes a SKYWARN spotter training by the National Weather Service and a question & answer session about climate change by Sean Sublette of Climate Central. Local speakers include the Alabama Emergency Manager, Brian Hastings; Madison County’s Emergency Manager, Chris Reed; the Huntsville Chief of Police; and more!

Adults will enjoy the rare opportunity to tour the National Weather Service Office and get a first-hand look at forecasting technology at SWIRLL. Kids will jump at the chance to climb in Storm Chasing & Research Vehicles and will be thrilled to spot weather mascots, such as Owlie Skywarn. Fun opportunities for learning about all things weather will continue throughout the day with weather balloon launches, hands-on activities & demonstrations, stage shows, door prize drawings and more!

Come out to UAH’s Charger Student Union and Shelby Center between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and boost your weather knowledge at this once-a-year festival!
