Course Description: National Weather Service - SKYWARN Spotter Training

1.5 hours

SKYWARN® Spotter Classes are offered free of charge from the combined efforts of your local National Weather Service Forecast Office and typically either local government, local civic groups, or centers of higher learning. A National Weather Service meteorologist will teach the class and bring related materials. The local group will provide the facility for the class and register all participants in the class.

The classes are designed to educate the public on weather threats in this area, as well as strengthen the ties between the NWS and the local community. The more spotters the NWS has out there, the faster vital ground truth information gets to the NWS forecasters who make the decisions to issue life saving weather warnings.
