The Fifth Tri-State Weather Conference will be held on Saturday, 18 October 2014 from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Science Building on the mid-town campus of Western Connecticut State University on White Street in Danbury, Connecticut. The conference is presented by the Meteorology Program at Western Connecticut State University and co-sponsored by the WestConn Student Chapter of the AMS, the New York City/Long Island Chapter of the AMS, NOAA/National Weather Service/Upton, N.Y and NOAA/National Weather Service/Taunton, MA. The purpose of the conference is to enhance education, professional development and communication among private and public sector meteorologists, researchers, educators, students, emergency management officials, and weather enthusiasts.
Submissions, in the form of posters, are being solicited on high impact weather events that affected the Tri-State region of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Potential topics would include, but are not limited to, nor‘easters and winter weather, severe thunderstorms, tropical weather and hurricanes, climate change, and mesoscale meteorology. We are especially interested in presentations about the unusually active weather pattern of the past two years in the Northeast.
