Lawless explains how the Airmen are making an impression

Tech. Sgt. Christopher Parr, 932nd Airlift Wing Public Affairs Non Commissioned Officer In Charge, listens intently as Master Sgt. Kelly Lawless, 12th Operational Weather Flight Manager, explains how the Airmen she supervises help keep track of severe Spring storm weather. 12th Operational Weather Flight, 932nd Airlift Wing, looks at information from the Storm Prediction Center with the main focus being convective activity and severe thunderstorms. The Air Force has been the backup agency for the Storm Prediction Center (SPC). The SPC handed off support to some of her Airmen on 26 March and even though SPC has a lot of other weather specialty products they produce, the ones that 12th OWF are in charge of are the convective outlooks days and weather watches. SPC is located in Norman, Oklahoma, so if they ever have to shelter for a tornado the Storm Prediction Center backup team is called in to take over. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj. Stan Paregien)
