National Weather Service; Baltimore/Washington, Open House this weekend

From the National Weather Srvice:

Hello our Emergency Manager partners,

We are looking for a little assistance spreading the word about our public open house this weekend.  It’s also a note for you and your families.

We are having a public open house at our office near Dulles Airport in northern VA this weekend at our office. It is a great STEM activity for school kids (and their families), as well as being very informative for those of all ages interested in weather and weather dangers in our region.

We only hold an open house every few years, so this weekend is great opportunity for those looking for something fun to do in the region. There will be hourly weather balloon launches, a hurricane force wind tunnel, presentations on all sorts of interesting weather, and tours of our office with all its technology on display. A link to more info is here:

We would appreciate it if you could help us let the community know about this fun weekend activity. If you have any questions, let me know.
