The 46th annual Northeastern Storm Conference was held virtually April 23-25, 2021, and was a resounding success!
The Friday evening Ice Breaker Speaker was meteorologist and Lyndon State College alumnus Pete Bouchard (’92). He is currently a broadcast meteorologist for NBC 10 in Boston, Massachusetts.
The virtual conference featured career-focused panel discussions to workshops on topics like science communication.

Saturday night’s Banquet Dinner Speaker was Bryan Norcross. Currently, Bryan is a Hurricane Specialist at WPLG in Miami, FL. This happens to be where he began his television career almost 40 years ago!
Really interesting to hear @bnorcross giving the evening keynote at #NESC2021.— Jack Sillin (@JackSillin) April 24, 2021
Right now, he’s addressing a question I think about a lot: when to start messaging a potential threat (hurricane/severe/winter)?
One great insight: probably don’t start on Sat/Sun (ppl pay less attn) pic.twitter.com/mi8EUMHvj9
Bernadette Woods Placky closed out the conference as the Sunday Keynote Speaker. Bernadette is the Chief Meteorologist and Director for Climate Central’s Climate Matters program.
So much to take away from @BernWoodsPlacky keynote address at #NESC2021! Really interesting to get some insight about how @ClimateCentral effectively communicates the changes in our climate to the public.— Matt Condon (@mattcondonwx) April 25, 2021
