Please mark your calenders for our next Central Alabama NWA meeting. It will be held Tuesday evening, June 21st. We are excited to have Tony Lyza, a PhD candidate at the University of Alabama at Huntsville. Tony is currently researching behaviors of tornadoes in the presence of significant topography. He is also coordinating the forecast support for VORTEX-SE and will share some preliminary results from deployments made this Spring.
The meeting will be held at Dale's Southern Grill in Hoover, Alabama. The restaurant is located on Highway 31 just south of the Riverchase Galleria. A private dining area within the restaurant has been reserved. We will meet at 6:30PM and have a time to socialize and eat before the presentation begins at 7:30PM. Dinner is on your own. Because space is limited in the dining area, we can only accommodate those members who have paid dues for 2016. You can still become a member by going to our web site Group homepage.
We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
