AMS Student Chapter Visits National Weather Service
Tour Provides Insight on Preparing Public Weather Forecasts
The University of Houston Chapter of the American Meteorological Society (UH CAMS) recently visited the Houston/Galveston National Weather Service (NWS) Office. The tour was led by Science Operations Officer Lance Wood.
The NWS Houston/Galveston, Texas office is responsible for issuing public weather forecasts, watches, warnings and advisories for the 23 counties in southeast Texas. Students were given the opportunity to see how these forecasts are made as well as how the NWS prepares the public for natural disasters such as hurricanes or floods.
