3. Severe Weather Symposium 4 March 16

In addition to the scheduled Skywarn weather spotter training sessions frequently mentioned on this net, Ohio is fortunate to have an annual severe weather symposium.  The Meteorology Club at The Ohio State University will present their 20th Annual Severe Weather Symposium at the US Bank Conference Theater, The Ohio Union, 1739 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio.

The symposium is free of charge, and takes place this year on Friday, March 4th from 9 AM to 5 PM.  Parking is available at the adjoining Ohio Union South Garage for $11.75 per day, and attendees should also be prepared for lunch in the Union or at one of the restaurants across the street.

Scheduled speakers this year include three National Weather Service employees, an OSU professor, the Delaware County emergency manager and two broadcast meteorologists, including Mike Bettes from The Weather Channel.
