Our SKYWARN training for the spring/early summer is over.  Check back in late September or October for our Basic Winter SKYWARN class list.  During these classes we are looking for volunteers to measure and report snowfall to us.  Like our spring classes, these are free and open to all ages.  We plan on offering both in person and online versions of the class.
 
About SKYWARN: Our program is a year round program.  Our goal is to train you how to accurately report severe weather to us, ranging from snowfall measurements, to severe weather (hail, wind, tornadoes, flooding).  We offer a Basic SKYWARN and an Advanced SKYWARN in our spring/early summer season, and a Basic Winter SKYWARN in the fall.  Flood SKYWARN is done throughout the year based on interest.  Anyone is welcome to attend the Basic SKYWARN classes, their is no age requirement and you do not need to have had prior training.  For our Advanced classes we required that you have attended (1) of our previous SKYWARN classes in the past 3 years.  This can include either our spring or winter version.  For Skywarn questions email Erik at erik.heden@noaa.gov.  For Skywarn Amateur Radio questions email Dave at david.morford@noaa.gov.
