Registering for a SKYWARN® Class
People are required to pre-register for all classes. This is necessary to control class size and provide the proper amount of handouts. Classes have a limited amount of space. If you register for a class and can not make it, please notify us so we can make your spot available to someone else. Upcoming classes are announced on this page and on NOAA Weather Radio. All training classes and SKYWARN® membership are free.
SKYWARN® Presentations and Field Guides
Please feel free to download or print up our SKYWARN® presentation(s) either prior to the class to take notes on or as a review after the course.
FLOOD - Coming Soon
TROPICAL - Coming Soon
Please also feel free to download a copy of the Basic Spotters' Field Guide for more information.
ONLINE SKYWARN® Courses
National SKYWARN® courses are also offered online by COMET on their MetED site (located here). These courses are free, and can be of extra value to you with severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. However, the local information on the multitude of weather threats we get in our region is missing. It is because of this vital missing information that you will not be registered into our spotter database or receive a spotter number until you take our Basics I SKYWARN® class taught by one of our meteorologists from the NWS Baltimore/Washington Forecast Office.
