The City of Irving and the City of Grand Prairie Emergency Management departments will host the National Weather Service for the SKYWARN severe weather program from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 29 at 801 West Irving Blvd., (the former Irving Central Library) in the auditorium.
The 2016 program will discuss thunderstorm formation, ingredients and features associated with severe and nonsevere storms. The program also discusses safety techniques to help keep residents safe when thunderstorms threaten the area. The class is open to official storm spotters, as well as anyone with an interest in learning about severe weather. The class is free of charge, and registration is not required.
Residents in North and Central Texas experienced numerous storms during 2015, from heavy rainfall to flooding to over 60 confirmed tornadoes. As 2016 advances into the spring season, residents are encouraged to learn more about severe weather preparation.
