Dec. 8, 2021 – NSF December Forum: “Winter is Coming! You know something…Chris Smallcomb”

To bring this perspective into focus, we are thrilled to have Mr. Chris Smallcomb (NWS meteorologist, emergency manager liaison, and author of the Freakout Chart) talk to us about the 2021-2022 Winter Outlook.
