The stated goal of our organization is to “bring all those in Eastern Mississippi interested in weather together as a group”. Throughout the history of the organization, we have not only sustained our mission but expanded upon it. The chapter is involved with school weather awareness, partnering with MyWarn to help get the word out when severe weather is imminent.
The chapter members have also been proud planners of the Southeast Severe Storms Symposium, held at Mississippi State University for the past ten years.
Education is also a high priority for the chapter. Chapter members have attended talks presented by employees of the National Weather Service in Jackson and Memphis. In addition, the chapter travels to NWA and AMS conferences yearly to both present and listen to presentations.
We want to thank you for viewing our web page and as we continue to grow, we would like to hear any comments or suggestions you may have.
