If you read my blog back in March, you know I'm a severe weather spotter for the National Weather Service. There is an interesting event coming up next week at St. Thomas. The Storm Prediction Center director will give a talk on "Outlook and Watch Probabilities." I'm planning on attending at this time. Here are the complete details from the Twin Cities chapter of the American Meteorological Society:

The Twin Cities Chapter of the American Meteorological Society is hosting Dr. Joe Schaefer, Director of the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center, as our featured speaker for our November 17th meeting. Dr. Schaefer will be talking about "Outlook and Watch Probabilities" as used in Storm Prediction Center products. The meeting is open to everyone. There is no cost and you do not need to be a member of the Chapter to attend.

We will be meeting in the 3M Auditorium of the Owens Science Hall at the University of St. Thomas here in Saint Paul, MN. The presentation will begin shortly after 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 17th. Parking is available in the Anderson ramp, just south of the Owens Science Hall at the cost of $2 per vehicle. The Anderson ramp is accessible from Cretin Ave.

We have a flyer about the meeting and a University of St. Thomas campus map. The Owens Science Hall is marked as #39 on the linked-to campus map, and the Anderson ramp is #35. Please help us share the information about this special event with your colleagues, students, friends, and anyone who you feel might be interseted.

If you have any questions or would like more details, please contact the Chapter officers by sending an e-mail to

We hope to see you there.
