Skywarn trainings have concluded for the fall season. Check back in February and early March for the upcoming Spring classes. Thanks for your interest. If you want you can go through an on-line recorded SKYWARN class in three parts below. Once you complete these trainings, email david.nicosia@noaa.gov and daniel.padavon@noaa.gov and we will put you in our spotter database. 

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. New for 2017 we are offering a Radar SKYWARN class in a couple locations. This course will teach you how we use radar for severe weather warnings and includes all the dual polar radar products. Prerequisite for this class is Advanced SKYWARN.  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 David Nicosia at david.nicosia@noaa.gov. For Skywarn Amateur Radio questions email Dave at david.morford@noaa.gov.
