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.

  • 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. - "Is Texoma missing out?": SKYWARN 6 Chief Meteorologist Ken Johnson will talk about our drought and why Texoma hasn't seen many tornadoes in recent years. 
  • 3 p.m. - 4 p.m. - "Storm Spotter Training": The National Weather Service out of Norman, OK will give a storm spotter training class for anyone interested in storm chasing, or just learning more about it.
  • 4 p.m. - 5 p.m. - "Stories from a Storm Chaser": SKYWARN 6 storm chaser Erik Fox will talk candidly about the thrilling attempts to find tornadoes and help save lives.

This is truly an event for the entire family, so be sure to bring the kids. We will have a ‘SKYWARN 6 Kids Corner’ where kids can meet Super Radar and participate in a coloring contest for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Chuck E Cheese! We will also have other kid friendly activities, including the chance to see a weather experiment.
