Severe Weather Workshop Planned At SCC Lincoln Campus

The saying goes “If you don’t like Nebraska weather, wait 15 minutes, and it will change.”

While that’s not always the case, often times it rings oh, so true.

Southeast Community College’s Continuing Education Division is holding a two-hour family event titled “Severe Weather: Backstage Pass,” from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Aug. 12 in the auditorium at the Continuing Education Center, 301 S. 68th St. Place, Lincoln. Cost is just $15 per family.

For more information, persons are asked to contact Nancy Holman at 437-2712 or nholman@southeast.edu.

From Alliance to Auburn and Springview to Superior, each section of Nebraska has its own unique identity and its own unique weather. This workshop will provide participants a look at the weather from backstage.

What does that mean? It means seeing weather from a different perspective. Participants will be let in on the secrets, the wonders and the mysteries that seem to unfold each time dawn breaks in the Cornhusker State.

Questions such as what is making it happen and how unique is Nebraska weather compared to elsewhere will be answered. Journey through the history of Nebraska weather while learning how to combat the strange and amazing phenomena that races from North Platte through Lincoln and on to Omaha.
