Pennsylvania is very diverse, and that includes our weather. With all four seasons comes a wide variety of weather across the Commonwealth. Join us as we talk to Jeff Jumper, Resiliency Program Manager within the Bureau of Recovery at the PA Emergency Management Agency (PEMA), to discuss some of our weather normal and some of our extremes. From tornadoes to floods, we’ll take a look through the Pennsylvania weather almanac.
Presentations begin at 12:15 PM and will last approximately 20 minutes followed by a question and answer session.
The Learn at Lunchtime programs are presented over Zoom and are free, but registration is required. Once registration is complete, attendees will receive an attendance link and password for all of the programs listed.
