We regret having to provide this late notice, but the 2020 Dark Sky Severe Weather Seminar scheduled for March 14th, 2020 at Madison College Truax Campus in Madison, Wisconsin has been canceled.

The cancellation is due to the public health concern of the recent Coronavirus outbreak based on the input of speakers, attendees, and health officials.

We’d like to sincerely thank all our speakers, information area participants, the media and the general public for their participation and community support.

MidWest Severe Storm Tracking/Response Center is working on Basic and Advanced Spotter Classes for the public during the summer of 2020… so stand by! Better yet, consider joining MidWest SSTRC!
