Following last month's presentation by Paul Kocin, former Weather Channel winter expert, the local chapter of the American Meteorological Society is hosting another operational forecaster for its February meeting next week. Ken Reeves, expert senior meteorologist and director of forecasting operations at AccuWeather, Inc., will be speaking on the subject, "Accuracy vs. Value: How Our Forecasts are Used." Reeves hosted an online chat at the Mother Ship last August on severe weather in the Midwest.
The meeting is a week from tonight, the 20th, beginning at 6:45 p.m. at the Environmental Protection Agency office, 1310 L St., NW. There is no charge to attend, but because of federal government security requirements, you must RSVP no later than the close of business tomorrow. RSVP information and directions are available on the DC-AMS Web site.
