The National Weather Service:  Building a Weather Ready Nation
Paul Schlatter
NWS
Boulder, Colorado


(Biography)

This webinar will highlight how and why the National Weather Service (NWS) is building a Weather-Ready Nation.  In terms of the why, Paul will explain why we need to be Weather-Ready and how it's becoming more difficult given the increasing vulnerability in many parts of the country.  In terms of the how, he will discuss recent changes to some of the products and services provided by the NWS, and how you can make the best use of them.  New and interesting weather products will be shown and explained, including where you can find them for your local area and how you can best apply them.
