Welcome to the DC WeatherFest Coalition - Explore the Wonders of Weather, Ocean, and Climate

The DC WeatherFest Coalition is a partnership of scientific societies, government, education, and private industry – providing a well-rounded look at weather, water, and climate. Our group presented the "WeatherFest" track at the USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, DC in October 2010.
