Warning Decision Storm of the Month Webinars

 

Hitting the Pause Button

The Warning Decision Storm of the Month Webinars are suspended beginning May 2017. Reduced staffing at the Warning Decision Training Division means we cannot continue to support this program. We have consistently received positive feedback about Storm of the Month, but more importantly, WDTD keeps learning from you: NWS forecasters telling their stories to their peers. We expect to revive this program as soon as we are once again fully staffed.
