  • Eh. Took a tour of the NWC lead by a sophomore student. Content was fine if you were interested in the building and VERY light weather education. The tour leader apparently lacked the background, experience, and history to even attempt a cogent answer to a question like "how is data combined from radar, ground weather stations, satellite, etc., to generate images used for sever weather condition predictions." If you like to see decision makers looking at large monitors or ever wondered why the building's light well doesn't line up with the roof window, this tour is for you. I think the tour leader did his best, but just didn't have enough background to handle any mildly technical questions. I hope management can correct this as it could be a very interesting tour.
  • Great annual weather fair. Keep us safe!
  • Top of the class meteorological building housing government agencies and OU's School of Meteorology. Access is restricted to employees and students and their guests but tours are available if booked in advance. Great lobby space for social gatherings and large halls for lectures on the ground floor. Observation deck 6 floors up has great views
  • Toured the place. Very cool.
  • Went to this place years ago for the Weather Festival which was pretty awesome! Loved this place!!
