Virtual SKYWARN Training Offerings with the National Weather Service

Interested in the weather? Want to support your local community and National Weather Service?


SKYWARN® is a National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer severe weather observers. Weather spotters support their local community and emergency responders by providing the NWS with timely and accurate ground truth reports of severe weather and its impacts. These reports, when integrated with modern NWS technology, are used to inform communities of the proper actions to take when severe weather occurs.


NWS has started scheduling for Spring Skywarn Weather Spotter training. These trainings will teach you how to identify and report hazardous weather to the NWS. Additional training will be scheduled accordingly so please continue to check in for the latest. Click the hyperlinks below to register for this virtual opportunity.
