Mark Fox, NWS spokesman, said the two-hour “storm spotter” program will be in multimedia format and will feature new video from 2012 storms.
The program is free, open to the public and no advance registration is necessary,” Fox said.
“Even if you don’t become a storm spotter you can learn how storms form and develop,” he said.
