Extreme Weather 2015: A Review of the Nebraska and U.S. Severe Weather

It’s that time of year again for our annual program presented by Dr. Ken Dewey, Applied Climate Researcher at UNL. Ken will give us an overview of the nation’s extreme weather events of 2015. He will also review the 2015 tornado season and compare it to the normals for the U.S., Nebraska, and our part of the state. He will also look back at the most dramatic event of 2015, the flooding in our area during May 2015.

Ken will also preview the Annual Central Plains Severe Weather Symposium, Weatherfest and Spring Spotter Training workshop that will all take place in Hardin Hall, East Campus of UNL on Saturday April 16. The Weatherfest, with its many exhibits runs from 9am until 2pm. The Severe Weather Symposium starts at 1pm with two presentations about the eastern Nebraska May 2015 flooding (Dave Pearson, NWS Omaha and James Davidsaver, Lancaster County EM).

Brian Smith will offer the annual storm spotter training workshop which will be followed by Reynolds Davis going over the Year 2016 Storm Spotter procedures. Come early, there will be food trucks in front of the building so that you can grab a lunch before the start of the program in the auditorium at 1pm
