In 1992, a new 
forecast office for
 Southeast Michigan
 was constructed in 
Oakland County’s 
White Lake Township. 
This office essentially 
merged the forecas t
office in Ann Arbor
 with the offices at Detroit Metro and Flint. Despite the departure of the National Weather Service from Detroit Metro Airport, climate data for DTW is still received and archived at the NWS White Lake office, maintaining the continuous weather data for Detroit that goes back to the late 19th century. On this tour, you will learn about weather forecasting and the weather balloon, then head out to 
the observation area to see the weather balloon launch for the evening.
