2013 Fermilab/WGN-TV Tornado and Severe Weather Seminar

Mark your calendars -- the 2013 Fermilab/WGN-TV Tornado and Severe Weather Seminar will take place Saturday, April 6th, at noon, and repeats in its entirety at 6 p.m.

The programs are free of charge, require no tickets and feature seating on a first come, first served basis. This is the 32nd year for the Fermilab tornado seminars! I recommend you arrive at least 30 minutes before the program starts.
Here's the latest from Tom:
"We are still finalizing our speakers. We know the newly named Director of the National Weather Service--Dr. Louis Uccellini []--will be joining us to talk about Hurricane Sandy, as well as climate change researcher Dr. Don Wuebbles out of the University of Illinois []. It’s the first time we’ve had a climate researcher join us and we’re really excited both by Louis' and Don’s appearance. Plus, we’ll be talking tornadoes, severe t-storms and severe weather safety with National Weather Service-Chicago Meteorologist in Charge Ed Fenelon and with Warning Coordination meteorologist Jim Allsopp."
That's all that's certain at the moment.
After conversations with Tom, this will be the last emailing from the website. Tom and I started this website in 2001 to better promote the program to the general public. ;-) These days though there are SO many social media platforms these days to stay connected with this event, that we believe the website is superfluous.
Saying that, the website will be closed down 2/28/13.
Check and for details and updates. Fermilab has an information line that's still got info for 2012 but should be updated soon; call (630) 840-2247
Special thanks go to Tom and seminar co-founder Brian Smith for this excellent program, the fine folks at Fermilab for hosting the seminar again and all their behind-the-scenes workers that make this event happen, and the fine bunch of folks at WGN that support public education and Tom!

Frank - website manager,
