This year’s Southern New England Weather Conference will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Because Meditech is being renovated, this year’s conference will be held at the Johnson & Wales Radisson next to T.F. Green Airport, Warwick, Rhode Island. Since 2000, the Conference has provided a place for weather enthusiasts and professionals to gather and share their knowledge and expertise regarding topics such as winter weather forecasting, severe weather, hurricanes, advances in the science of meteorology, and emergency preparedness, as well as many other topics. Regardless of whether you are a seasoned professional or have just a casual interest in weather, the Southern New England Weather Conference is sure to offer topics of interest to you.
Some of the topics that will be covered this year include:
- The 25th Anniversary of Hurricane Bob and the Perfect Storm, including a presentation from John Spillane, USAF Pararescueman who survived at sea after his rescue helicopter was forced to ditch while attempting a rescue.
- A look at Canada’s warning and response system to Hurricanes and Blizzards
- How Weather and Measurement impacts everything from self-driving vehicles to DeflateGate
- El Nino and how it impacted New England this past winter and spring
