StormTracker Tour begins January 10th in Bristol with a special guest
Shortly after ringing in the new year, News 5 WCYB introduced its new weather tool - StormTracker.
Now, we're taking it on a 10-city tour. That tour starts on Wednesday, January 10th in front of the WCYB studios in downtown Bristol, VA - in the Johnny Wood Plaza across from the Bristol Train Station/Sign and next to HomeTrust Bank and the Bristol Courthouse. Johnny Wood will be coming out of retirement for the day to hang out with all of us!
The event goes from 4-6:30. If you haven't seen the event on Facebook, check it out here. The StormTrack 5 Weather Team will be on site with different weather and science-related experiments, information on storms and emergency preparedness and much more! At each stop on the tour, you can register to win 4 tickets to Dollywood or a Winter Weather Starter Kit for your car. You must enter at the location, not online. The winner will be announced during the 6pm news on WCYB, as we report live from each StormTracker tour destination.
We will announce the specific location for the upcoming town each week during the live broadcast.

We hope to see you out and about! If you have any questions, feel free to let us know. You can also send us your pictures from the StormTracker tour here.
