Eye of the Storm: Forecasting a Hurricane
Time & Location
About The Event
Florida International University’s (FIU) International Hurricane Research Center (IHRC) and Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) invite families across the nation, especially those in hurricane-prone regions, to explore this free virtual series, Eye of the Storm. The series is sponsored by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) and IHRC.
In this episode, you’ll hear from the National Hurricane Center (NHC), which provides the well-known cone of uncertainty during storm season. The NHC has a huge responsibility, working 24 hours each day to communicate severe weather through watches, warnings and storm surge potential in order to keep the public safe. You’ll see the latest forecasting models and mechanisms and learn about the career of a meteorologist. Then, KaBoom! The science experts at MODS will perform a weather demonstration, creating a nitro cloud (don’t try this at home)!
Special thanks to our partners at NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC).
