Winter is in full gear--and this year's snowstorms have been some of the worst on record across the country. To help increase awareness of the need for educating children about severe weather preparedness, PLAN!T NOW (P!N), has teamed up with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Weather Service (NWS), the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the National Education Association (NEA) to produce The Young Meteorologist Program (YMP). The program is a free online resource and computer game starring OWLIE, a wise, weather-savvy hero who educates and empowers children and adults alike as he teaches severe-weather science, weather awareness and safety.

And for those in the Atlanta, GA area: Don't miss the chance to see OWLIE in person when he makes a special appearance to delight fans on Tuesday, February 4, at the Weather-Ready Nation Atlanta Hawks vs. Indiana Pacers Basketball Game at Philips Arena, 91 Philips Dr, Atlanta, GA 30303, 6:30 p.m.
