Marquette, MI – As seen in recent years, America is becoming increasingly vulnerable to weather events. Even Upper Michigan, which many perceive as being immune to significant weather, faces significant threats from winter storms, flooding, wind storms, and severe thunderstorms. Each year, meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Marquette travel across Upper Michigan giving spring weather presentations. The presentations cater to the typical weather enthusiast and allow an opportunity for residents from across the U.P. to be actively involved in reporting important weather information to the National Weather Service. Routine weather reports during active weather are critical to the National Weather Service’s protection of life and property mission. The presentations are free, open to the public, and no advance registration is required.
This year’s National Weather Service presentation will last about 1 1/2 hours. Some of the topics that will be covered include, the public’s role in building a Weather-Ready Nation, social media’s role in weather reporting, a recap of last year’s storms including the historic flooding in the Keweenaw, basic radar and cloud interpretation, and weather safety and preparedness.
A calendar of scheduled talks can be found on the National Weather Service Marquette website at www.weather.gov/mqt. Additional information is also available by calling the National Weather Service at (906)-475-5212.
