National Weather Festival 2010 Draws Big Crowds

Attendees enjoyed the event’s many activities and attractions spread throughout the National Weather Center – hourly weather balloon launches with local TV weather personalities, children’s activities, tours of the National Weather Service hallway, meeting the “Weather Friends,” about 40 vehicles entered in the Storm Chaser Car Show and viewing research vehicles involved in the recent VORTEX2 tornado project. The crew from Discovery Channel’s Storm Chasers signed autographs and took pictures with folks alongside their chase vehicle, the DOMINATOR.

More than 100 staff and student volunteers contributed to the event’s success.
