Weather is fascinating.  This Saturday you can learn more about its extremes from the "SKYWARN 6 Storm Team" and featured guests.

Our trusted meteorologists will be in Wichita Falls for the final stop of our fourth annual "SKYWARN 6 Weather Road Show." The Storm Team travels Texoma just before each Spring severe weather season to make sure we're all armed and ready to stay safe in even the worst storms.  

This year, our final stop is ending the tour with a bang! Join us this weekend for our first ever “SKY WARN 6 Weather Road Show Fair." Sikes Senter Mall is co-hosting the fair, and will also serve as the location for the event. The fair will be held from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the JC Penny’s Court.
