Updated 2021 SKYWARN Information:  

2021 SKYWARN spotter training has completed for the season. Unfortunately these events were not allowed to be recorded for later viewing.

As usual, all training is free and open to the public.  You can be a certified Skywarn severe weather spotter by attending one of these virtual training 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. 

To schedule training and request more information on Skywarn, contact Scott.Entrekin@noaa.gov

Each spring we offer spotter training from March through May. 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.
