Today I spoke to the person coordinating the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's Out of the Darkness Community Walk. They have a fund raising walk taking place THIS SATURDAY October 19 and are short on volunteers.

This event takes place on Wade Oval down in University Circle and around parts of the Case Western Reserve campus. It is approximately a 2.5 mile course. They expect approximately 2,000 participants (already 1,500 are registered).

We will be assisting them with general route awareness keeping an eye out for any medical or safety issues.

The walk begins this Saturday, October 19 at 11:30 AM (yes, you read that right, no o'dark thirty start here!). We expect the last walkers to take no more than about an hour or so.

I know this is a last minute request, but those of you who have known me for a while know that Suicide prevention is a cause that is very near to my heart, so PLEASE let's make a good showing here!

 If you are able to help please SIGN UP HERE.

Skywarn Recognition Day 2020

(updated operating times)
Skywarn Recognition Day will be taking place nationally on Saturday, December 7th, 2019 for 24 hours starting at 0000Z (Friday, Dec 6th, 7:00 PM Eastern until Saturday, Dec 7th, 7:00 PM Eastern). The NWS Cleveland Office will be participating from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM (this is updated from our last announcement) on Saturday, December 7th, 2019. We will be operating under the call sign WX8CLE and will be active on UHF, VHF, and HF (HF bands to be determined later). We will also periodically spin the dial on local repeaters.

Just like last year, we will operate UHF/VHF inside the office and HF outside in the new vehicle. Anyone interested in attending is encouraged to sign up here, but since we will be partially operating from outside, last minute walk ins are welcome. Access to the inside of the building will be restricted based on attendance as the operating area can only accommodate a certain number of people at once. Additionally, any sort of severe weather event could potentially result in us cancelling the operation. Those who sign up will be advised of any last minute changes, or we can be contacted on the Skywarn simplex frequency of 146.475 (we will do our best to keep a radio on this the entire time).

When you arrive on site, please check in with the operators in the vehicle. They will then arrange access to the building should you desire to come inside. if no one is present, call us on 146.475 simplex.

As you may know, the Cleveland NWS office will be relocating in spring 2020 so this will be the last time to operate from the office at the airport!

The address for the National Weather Service Cleveland is 5301 W Hangar Rd, Cleveland, OH 44135. This is off of Brookpark Rd, between NASA and Hopkins, behind the UPS hangar.
