This Weekend: Weather Service Open House

By Jason Samenow

As I write this, the National Weather Service (NWS) Open House in Sterling, Va. is ongoing and will continue through 5 p.m. today, and noon to 5 p.m. tomorrow. All sorts of activities are planned along with tours, weather observing classes and a dedication ceremony for the newly constructed facility. In yesterday's Washington Post print edition, columnist John Kelly wrote: "But surely the highlight will be at 4 each afternoon when ... [NWS forecasters] present their multimedia salute to weather in music and prose." DCist's reaction to the prospect of this multimedia show: "yikes."

If you can't make it out to Sterling, you can watch a series of videos on Fox 5's Web site in which weathercaster Tony Perkins tours the facility.

If you do go, report back on your experience in the comment area.

See our earlier blog post about the Open House, and our full forecast for the weekend weather outlook.
