Tech Night at QDNYC

Please join us for an evening of fun, food and information at QDNYC.

Our speaker for this event is Glenn Field. Glenn has been the Warning Coordination Meteorologist (WCM) for the National Weather Service (NWS) Forecast Office in Taunton, MA since October, 1993.  As WCM, he is responsible for ensuring that customers of weather forecasts and warnings are able to receive the products and that they understand what they mean.

 The Realities of New England Hurricanes are very different from the kind of hurricanes that you've read about or that strike Florida or the Caribbean.  You will learn why the structure is different and thus, how our safety and preparedness rules are different in some ways. This presentation will take you back to the days of the 1938 Hurricane, Connie, Diane, Carol, etc. and show what a true hurricane really can do!

A brief demonstration of NWS-Norton, MA website will be given so that you know where to go for marine-related information.  This includes 7-day outlooks; area forecast discussions, and hourly weather graphs.  Feel free to ask questions.
