Annual Weather Talks Coming to SEK


Severe weather season will be here before we know it, and the National Weather Service is holding classes to help you prepare.


Each year the weather service embarks on a SKYWARN weather training journey to help train citizens across the state how to identify, interpret and remain safe during hazardous weather situations. Wichita NWS Office Forecaster Vanessa Pearce says the class covers a variety of topics.


Pearce says the information is valuable to anyone living in the area as severe weather season approaches.


Most counties will have their own presentation. In Montgomery county, the spotter talk will be Thursday, February 16th at 6:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall in Independence. Chautauqua county will be Tuesday, February 21st at 6:30 p.m. in the Sedan Senior Citizens Center, and Labette County will be Thursday, February 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in the Altamont High School Theater.
