Eye of the Storm: National Weather Service
Time & Location
About The Event
Eye of the Storm keeps you prepared and informed before, during and after hurricane season.
In this episode, we’ll hear from the National Weather Service in Miami (NWS), the essential organization that uses technology to develop and send out all severe weather forecasts and warnings. This information helps residents and visitors make plans or take immediate action surrounding severe weather.
Check out the coolest weather tech, the NWS weather balloons and radiosondes, which help record key atmospheric data such as temperature and humidity to make computer models. Then in today’s MODS BRAINSTORM, we’ll demonstrate what happens when hot air and cold air meet, causing crushing conditions.
