Minutes of the February 7, 2000 Meeting
Smoky Mountain AMS Chapter

The February meeting (postponed from January) meeting of the Smoky Mountain Chapter of the American Meteorological Society started with dinner at 6:00 pm at the Logan's Roadhouse.

After dinner, we adjourned right after dinner to the Channel 10 television studio, where Todd Howell and Mark Johnson hosted a tour of the Channel 10 Forecast Center and the rest of the station. They talked about how they prepare for both normal shows and severe/winter weather. Included was explanations of their graphics systems, how a newscast works, the actual on-the-air presentation techniques, and lots of questions from us!!!
