Office Tours


Interested in learning more about our office and the jobs we perform? Our office conducts tours for small groups (generally 25 or less). Tours are scheduled prior to the date so that proper scheduling and notification is given to the staff. Office tours are available for educational, operational and informational interests and can be tailored to the needs of the group or individual.

Tour guidelines:

  • Usually 3rd grade or older (around age 9)
  • Usually conducted between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays 
  • Tours and talks are weather dependent (may have to be cancelled if inclement weather is occuring or expected)

A 'typical' office tour includes...

  • Background about NOAA's National Weather Service
  • Tools used by meteorologists to issue warnings and forecast
  • The forecast process
  • Routine and non-routine duties
  • Tour of operations area to include workstation demonstration

Tours typically last 30 to 45 minutes but can be shortened or extended depending on topics requested and covered. Tours can also be modified depending on the needs of the group and educational interest.

For more information contact Warning Coordination Meteorologist Teresa Keck during regular business hours, M-F from 9 am to 3 pm, at (308) 532-4936 or email Teresa.Keck@noaa.gov

NOTE: As mentioned above, severe or inclement weather may cause us to cancel scheduled tours. In most cases, they can be rescheduled. Staffing limitations typically dictate tour availability.
