Menlo Park Library

Climate and weather — the two are so often confused. A meteorologist from the National Weather Service will be at the Menlo Park Library to explain the distinctions and to answer questions on Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

The National Weather Service is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (a division of the Department of Commerce) with a network of 122 local weather forecast offices and numerous regional centers that keep tabs around the clock on weather, fire, river, coast and ocean conditions.

NWS forecasters rely on a network of radars, satellites, ocean buoys, weather balloons, other observations, and supercomputers to provide timely, accurate, and reliable forecasts. They also issue critical watches and warnings before extreme weather strikes.
