National Weather Festival

      The world's severe weather experts are coming to our own backyard at the National Weather Center in Norman, and they are hosting their annual open house at the National Weather Festival.

      It highlights the many weather related organizations and activities in central Oklahoma.

      Visitors can view the National Weather Center's premier facilities including National Weather Service forecast operation areas.

      This unique event features hourly weather balloon launches with local TV meteorologists, emergency response vehicle and equipment displays, LEGO models and robots demonstration, children's activities, and weather related information and products.

      You can even talk with the weather experts!

      There will be special booths where people can ask their questions about tornadoes, storm shelters, storm fears and Oklahoma weather patterns.

      And the best part is, it is free to the public!
