Online Program


Thanks to all that took the time to respond to the recent survey regarding travel to the 49th Conference on Broadcast Meteorology/Sixth Conference on Weather Warnings and Communication. An overwhelming majority of you noted, at this time, you are not comfortable or would be unable to travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin for in-person sessions. Given this, the program committees for both conferences have decided to postpone the 15-18 June 2021 conferences to 14-17 June 2022. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding while AMS leadership closely monitors the ongoing COVID-19 situation. We look forward to your participation in June 2022!
