The National Weather Service is pleased to announce our 2010 aviation weather safety workshop.  Get ready for an evening of engaging talks covering a number of topics related to aviation weather pertinent to those flying in West Texas.  Presented by the meteorologists who prepare your TAFs for Lubbock and Childress, these talks will serve to enhance your knowlege of aviation meteorology that will help assist your decision making processes.  We will also review weather conditions which recently caused a fatality general aviation accident last year.

We are excited to offer you a couple of ways to be active participants in the event. 

 Do you have questions regarding weather observation and forecasting?  Submit any question in which you are interested and we will make it part of our program.  How can I find smooth air?  Are there "hidden messages" in TAFs?  What is in the picture?

 Click here to send in your questions and we'll do our best to get them answered during the program.

Take part in a roundtable discussion about aviation weather forecasting.  We will be actively seeking your feedback on our products and services.
