This is a great place to visit. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It is free to tour, but you have to book in advance. This gives you an inside view of where weather is monitored nation wide!

I was there with a motorcoach group. Total of 46 in group but they kindly accommodated us all in the same group. This place was fascinating! Loved the weather sphere, weather wall, the top floor where a lot of weather watching occurs. Our guide was so informative and upbeat about every part of the weather and the school. This stop was definitely a homerun! Some even visited the Flying Cow Café!

At the time I went it was only opened several times a week for visitors that had made a reservation in advance. It was very interesting to see the advances in enhanced dopler radar imaging and how well data integration from sateilites works. OU has been doing a great deal of work in conjunction with DARPA at this NOAA facility fro several years.

Coming up October 21, 2017, from 10 am until 2 pm will be this year's National Weather Festival. This yearly event is a great opportunity to see the inner workings of the National Weather Center.

The NWC is premier facility of its type in the nation.

Took the tour of the National Weather service. The tour was very informative and interesting. The tour guide explained things in lay terms to make it easy for everyone to understand. It is not only for "weather geeks" but anyone that has any interest in the weather around them,and how the local tv meteorologist comes up with their info to tell you how they come up with their forecast.
