Since 2000, the Southern New England Weather Conference has provided a place for weather enthusiasts and professionals to gather and share their knowledge and expertise regarding topics such as winter weather forecasting, severe weather, hurricanes, advances in the science of meteorology, and emergency preparedness, as well as numerous other topics.

Regardless of whether you are a seasoned professional or have just a casual interest in weather, the Southern New England Weather Conference is sure to offer topics of interest to you!


Registration is now open here

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.  That being said, we are excited to announce that a virtual "mini conference" will be held on Saturday, November 13th between 10AM and 1:00PM - so mark your calendar!  We are planning on having seven talks at this time, with speakers including:

  • Dr. Louis Uccellini, the Director of the National Weather Service, who will be retiring at the end of the year.
  • Dan Brown, a Senior Hurricane Specialist from the National Hurricane Center
  • Alex Lamers, Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the Weather Prediction Center
  • Dave Vallee - Hydrologist-in-Charge of the Northeast River Forecast Center
  • A.J. Burnett - Meteorologist and Weather Producer for WCVB in Boston
  • Bryce Williams and Torry Gaucher - Meteorologists at the National Weather Service office in Norton, MA
  • After 1:00, for anyone (especially students) that wants to stay on, there will be a panel dicussion with meteorology professionals in various fields (public, private, academic) on careers and career paths for anyone interested in pursuing a career in weather.

The complete agenda is available here.

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 in-person conference. The health and safety for our presenters/attendees is our top priority. The next in-person 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.
