Spotter training is now open for scheduling! Each spring we offer spotter training from March through early June. From June through the summer, due to severe weather, NWS resources are limited and not readily available for training. However, we will try and accommodate additional spotter training at any time during the year if resources are available.   

These talks are free and open to the public. At each session we offer basic training followed by a smaller section on advanced training.  You can be a certified Skywarn severe weather spotter by attending one of these events. The National Weather Service will count on you to be our "eyes" out in the field, when trying to verify severe weather across northeast Colorado. The National Weather Service in Boulder warns for 22 counties, and your reports are very helpful to us as we make warning decisions on severe thunderstorms. 

We request that you register with the contact point for the talk you plan to attend. There will be an embedded RSVP who is hosting that event when you click the link. In the event of spring snow storms, check this page for possible cancellations and updates.  To schedule training and more information on Skywarn, contact Scott.Entrekin@noaa.gov
