Severe Weather Awareness Day -- 2016 (2/27)
« on: January 07, 2016, 03:00:38 PM »
So....Figured I would start the thread. Who is going to make the trip this year? Pretty sure I'm going to make a return visit. The big news is this year's keynote speaker...none other than James Spann. I'm quite sure it's going to be a great event...had a ton of fun last year.



Registration doesn't open until February 1st...so some time to make plans. As always it is free!

I'd like to go for the first half of the day but I guess it all depends on if it's worth it. Preds play at 2:00 that day and I'm going to that game. Hopefully Spann speaks in the morning

Here was the agenda for last years SWAD. The guest speaker, Greg Carbin, spoke in the morning, and if you love weather (which you do!) then this event is definitely worth your time.

If I'm not there, send a search party because something happened.

James is like homemade icing on an already delicious cake.

James Spann is cool and all, but that's kind of creepy.

I really want to come this year but I am afraid I40 will be shut down because of snow drifts.  ::snowman::

My bad. Not trying to be creepy. Just was excited to hear the rundown of this year's event.

No worries... just thought it was funny.  :laugh:

I just registered. Does anyone happen to know when a schedule will be posted? Since I don't live in Nashville(yet) I'm going to attempt to maximize my time by going to a Preds game at 2:00. Really hoping Spann speaks in the morning or I can at least get in an advanced spotter class

true indeed chris... but what andy is referring to overall. is the traditional spring severe season looks as now to be slow start due to constant ridge placement out west... that puts trough east allowing more nw flow type or just plain cooler weather over eastern consenus...would hamper the severe spring season across Dixie ms valley regions... I am personally hoping the models can loose this look in future... me being a big severe weather lover n chaser... ::fingerscrossed::
