WeatherFest this Friday, March 15th

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Our student Meteorology club STORM is running the 5th Annual UNC Charlotte WeatherFest on Friday March 15 from 10am to 4pm at the Hauser Alumni Pavilion on campus.  Like previous years, the celebration of weather has been completely organized and led by our undergraduate majors.  This year, they even raised money for the event via crowd-funding! WeatherFest 2019 will include weather activities, faculty presentations about hurricanes, tornadoes, lightning, and climate, and there will be displays by forecasters from the National Weather Service and other businesses that use weather science (storm runoff, hazard mitigation/preparation).  You can also meet some of our city's TV Meteorologists, and see a weather balloon launch.  The event is free to attend, and updates can be found at https://www.facebook.com/CharlotteWeatherFest/ and https://twitter.com/UNCCWeather
