2011 National Weather Service Open House
Portland Weather Forecast Office
You, your staff, family, colleagues and community members are invited to our office in Portland for an Open House on Saturday, August 27th. The event will run from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The Open House is designed so you can drop in anytime during the event and stay as long as you want. We will have a short (10-15 minute) presentation at the top and bottom of every hour (e.g., 11:00, 11:30, etc) for those who are interested and offer tours of our facility that emphasizes conversations with our staff. You'll have plenty of opportunity to discuss topics of interest to you.
Some of the areas you can tour and topics discussed or demonstrated are:
Weather Satellite Imagery
Doppler Weather Radar
NOAA Weather Radio (What is it and why do I need one)
Real-time River Stage Displays
Getting Weather from the Internet
And much, much more!
