National Weather Service Skywarn Spotter Training


Date: Monday, April 29, 2019 at 6:00pm - 8:00pm

NATIONAL  WEATHER  SERVICE SKYWARN SPOTTER  TRAINING

Become a volunteer severe storm spotter and learn how to identify and report severe weather to your local National Weather Service Office, keeping your local community informed of potentially hazardous weather!  Learn how you and your community can stay safe from these hazards.

The National Weather Service Office in Billings, Montana, in cooperation with the Adult Education program will be conducting this SKYWARN Spotter Training Session.

The National Weather Service relies on these trained volunteers to supplement Dopplar radar information on severe storms.  These spotter reports are an important step in the National Weather Service warning decision process for severe thunderstorms that produce damaging hail, high winds, tornadoes and flash floods.

The training is free and anyone interested in severe weather or becoming a trained severe storm spotter is invited to attend.  Volunteers currently registered for the program are also encouraged to attend as a refresher and to stay updated on the latest reporting procedures.
