We're going to keep things on the safe side again this year to discuss our passion for weather, so we will "meet" virtually once again.

In light of the current climate and many unknowns regarding COVID-19, the Southern New England Weather Conference committee made the difficult decision to postpone our annual conference. The health and safety for our presenters/attendees is our top priority. The next Southern New England Weather Conference will be held in the Fall of 2022. We understand the disappointment this might have caused and, believe us, we are equally disappointed as well
The Southern New England Weather Conference is a non-profit venture that is sponsored by the National Weather Service Taunton MA, the Blue Hill Observatory and Science Center, the University of Massachusetts-Lowell Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society and the Lyndon State College Chapter of the American Meteorological Society/National Weather Association.
