There are many different groups that have indicated interest in coming to the
Forecast Office for tours. Just a few of these include:
Tour Scheduling: For large groups with over 10 people, we ask that you keep the age
limit to 10 years and older.
- School systems (classes/teachers)
- Scout troops
- Amateur radio groups
- Church organizations
- Senior citizen groups
- Weather spotter groups
For smaller groups, all ages are acceptable and can more easily be accommodated.
We recommend that there be at least one adult for every 3 children under the age of 10.
The best time to request a tour is between the hours of 10:00 am and Noon, 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm,
and after 5:00 pm. Other times may be scheduled if necessary. During the spring and
summer months, please try to keep tour requests to the early morning hours.
*Please Note: Tours may be cancelled, if necessary, because of weather,
staffing shortage, or changes to the terror alert threat level. Because of occasional
unforeseen circumstances, some tours may need to be cancelled at the last minute.
We will make arrangements to re-schedule the tour as soon as possible, or can offer a
weather presentation instead.
To request a tour, please contact the National Weather Service in Binghamton by phone at 607-729-1597.
