Glenn Burns Forecast to Speak at Tellus

Here’s a weather forecast that you can count on: Glenn Burns from Atlanta’s Channel 2 will be at Cartersville’s Tellus Science Museum on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 2 PM.   He’ll be speaking on “Weather Matters” and how the Channel 2 Weather Center comes up with accurate weather forecasts.

Here’s your big chance to tell a real-live weatherperson that you would love a job that only requires being accurate 50% of the time.  (Even though he’s probably heard that a thousand times, give it a shot.)

If you’re a weather geek, you won’t want to miss this — just because you’d rather watch the weather than MTV.

If you’ve ever wondered how weatherpeople can project the paths of tornadoes, you won’t want to miss this.

If you’ve ever pondered the similarity between the sound a train makes as it passes by where you’re standing and color radar, you won’t want to miss hearing Glenn Burns at Tellus.

Glenn will share a few of his experiences with severe weather and how the new state-of-the-art Dual Polarization Doppler works.

For members only: the Observatory will be open for special solar viewing from 11 AM until 4 PM.
