Thank you for your interest. You can go through an on-line recorded SKYWARN class for basic severe, advanced severe, flood or winter. Once you complete these trainings, email your location name and contact information to Mitchell.Gaines@noaa.gov. This is only for New York and Pennsylvania counties within our area of coverage. If you are viewing these videos outside of NY and PA, please follow up with your local National Weather Service office.  While not included in the videos, information on HAM radio networks across the region is listed below.  Also, we do not give out spotter ID's. 

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, there is no age requirement and you do not need to have had prior training.  For our Advanced classes we require 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 Mitchell Gaines or Bryan Greenblatt at Mitchell.Gaines@noaa.gov, Bryan.Greenblatt@noaa.gov.
