The process of severe weather warning operations within the National Weather Service (NWS) starts with the education of the staff regarding severe weather and then as employees attend workshops and seminars, review literature, and research past severe weather outbreaks. James Auten of the Lincoln Illinois National Weather Service Forecast Office spoke to the Central Illinois chapter about severe-weather warning operations inside the NWS. His talk covered information on the processes involved in preparing for successful operations, staffing positions, the operational plan, factors to consider in the days preceding a severe-weather event and during the event and actions taken following the event.
