Wondering About Weather?

NOAA/National Weather Service Senior Meteorologist Hayden Frank, serving the Norton, MA Office, Will be here to talk about the National Weather Service’s core mission – the protection of life and property – and inform us about the various weather hazards that impact southern New England. Come and hear how information is disseminated and learn about the types of advisories, watches and warnings that are issued. Plenty of time will be allotted for questions during and after the presentation.

Hayden Frank is the Severe Weather, Marine, Fire Weather and Outreach Focal Points for the NOAA/NWS office. He also works on various other programs including StormReady and numerous research projects. Hayden served the Wichita, KS area before transferring to Taunton in 2003. He loves all kinds of weather but always had a special interest in snowstorms, so living in New England is a perfect fit for him.
