The NWA Foundation's WeatherReady Fest is coming up on September 7th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the campus of UAH and we are in need of a few volunteers.
WeatherReady Fest is a fun and educational event for all. Family-friendly games, hands-on activities, and enlightening speakers will highlight this big, one-day weather festival.
Adults will have the opportunity to hear leading meteorologists, tour the National Weather Service Office, and get a first-hand look at forecasting technology at SWIRLL. Kids will love playing weather games while collecting stamps in their very own WeatherReady Passport for the chance to win exciting door prizes. They will have a blast learning how to be a Young Meteorologist in a special program on the center stage. Weather Channel Meteorologist Nick Walker will lead a stage show singing songs about weather preparedness. Owlie Skywarn and other mascots will be there to pump up the energy.
Volunteers for WeatherReady Fest will receive a free event polo shirt along with free lunch and drinks. If you would like to volunteer for the event, please email the chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The first meeting of the 2019 calendar year will take place on Monday evening, August 5th, from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm at the 2020 building in Birmingham. Jason Holmes, from NWS Birmingham, will be discussing his presentation: The Development of a Dixie Alley Mean Tornado Sounding. This will be featured in a poster presentation at the Annual NWA Conference in Huntsville in September.
Be sure to show up a few minutes early to meet and mingle with other members which include TV and NWS meteorologists. We'll have some light snacks and refreshments available during the entire meeting.
I hope you have a great day and I hope to see you Monday evening.
