21st Winter Weather Forecast Conference

The Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) will once again host the 21st annual Winter Weather Forecast Conference Saturday, October 26th @ 10 AM in Portland. Meteorologists from across the Pacific Northwest will once again descend on the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) to give their prognostications for the upcoming winter. With the absence of El Nino or La Nina, could the Pacific Northwest be in for a wild weather ride this winter? Will it be a good ski season in the Cascades? The Oregon AMS will also take a closer look at the accuracy of those ever-popular Farmers Almanac forecasts. Are they really as accurate as they claim to be? A $300 Davis home weather station will be raffled off to one lucky winner. Media outlets are once again encouraged to advance and cover this annual event. The Oregon AMS is available for media interviews in advance of the conference. For complete meeting details, please see: http://www.ametsoc.org/chapters/oregon/
