Meteorology and Warn on Forecast For more information on this meteorological series, contact [email protected] Imagine your son playing a baseball game. A severe storm comes in, and a tornado warning blares. Luckily, all the children make it to the dugout and remain safe throughout the storm. We want to do better. We want the children to be safe at home with the game cancelled, because our information warned them about the storm. The National Weather Service is working toward taking action before such events hits; that would be the best scenario. – Chris Strager Christopher S.
