2018 Skywarn Training Calendar          Contact:


Severe Weather and Safety Training, called SKYWARN, is free and open to the public.

There is no need to register. Sessions will last about an hour and forty-five minutes.

We'll have interaction with the audience on thunderstorm formation and storm hazards, flash floods, lightning, tornadoes, hail and high wind. We'll tell you how to be prepared and how to stay safe. Storm structure and strength will be discussed and of course the important differences between WATCHES and WARNINGS.

Come see some neat pictures and cool video and learn how to be Weather-Ready!

Yellow - completed talks.     Green - upcoming talks (near the bottom of the list).
