Spotter Training Schedule

Updated: June 8th 2017

 

Forecasters from the National Weather Service in New York City conduct storm spotter training sessions each year to help prepare spotters for the upcoming severe weather season. The training sessions are typically about three hours long and cover fundamental information that every spotter needs to know, with a focus on safety, identification of key weather features and proper reporting procedures. Most sessions are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about being a spotter, but you should check to be sure before attending a class.

All classes are free and most classes start at 7:00 pm.

Please note: A short multiple choice, true/false exam may be given at the conclusion of each class. Spotter cards with your new number will be mailed to you with a passing grade of 70% or higher.
