Can I visit my local NWS office?
Visiting your local NWS Forecasting Office is something that is not only allowed, but also encouraged. Unfortunately, there are times when this might not be possible. As you know, NWS offices are very busy places, especially during severe weather events. The NWS is usually able to accommodate an individual's request to see the office, but would like to set this set up in advance as much as possible. They can often accommodate unannounced "walk-ins", but they are at the visitor's "own risk". The NWS does not schedule formal tours from March 15 through June 15th because of severe weather demands.
