Denver will host the 11th annual National Storm Chaser Convention from February 13th to February 15th.

The 11th annual National Storm Chaser Convention hits town this weekend as some of the nation’s premier storm chasers converge on Denver.  Whether you are a seasoned chaser or just someone with an interest in the weather, this is an extraordinary opportunity to mingle with and hear from some of the biggest names in severe weather.  The event is organized every year by two of the biggest names in storm chasing – Roger Hill and Tim Samaras.

Held at the Red Lion Inn in Parker, the event kicks off Friday night with an ice-breaker and a chance to mingle with other weather enthusiasts.  Saturday morning the event starts in earnest with an extraordinary slate of speakers covering an array of topics.  Saturday night is the infamous video night where videos and photos from last year’s record setting year of tornadoes are sure to play a big part and Sunday the convention continues with additional speakers. 

Some of the speakers this year include:

Also notable, the National Weather Service will be holding a free storm spotter training session Sunday afternoon.  These are a great way to learn much more about severe weather.  Click here to learn more about storm spotter training and what it involves.
