Nov. 10 Big Muddy Speaker Series in Kansas City

"Forecasting the Mighty Mo"
an introduction to the Missouri River Basin Forecast Center

presentation by Kevin Low, P.E, National Weather Service

When flood season hits the Missouri River, those of us that work on the river find ourselves obsessively checking the forecasts put out by the Missouri River Basin Forecast Center in Pleasant Hill. Many of us have wondered...how do they do that?

Kevin Low will be explaining this complicated task, and giving a broad view of the Missouri River watershed in the process.

Thursday, November 10, 7 p.m.
At the Farmhouse Restaurant
300 Delaware St. - Kansas City, MO (in the River Market),
(816) 569-6032
