Spotter Classes      






The National Weather Service in Cheyenne conducts spotter training classes, which are scheduled throughout the spring months annually. Attendees are taught the basics of thunderstorm development, storm structure, storm features to look for, and where to find them. What, when and how to report severe weather information as well as basic severe weather safety rules are also discussed. The class is a multi-media presentation, which includes real-life video examples. These spotter classes typically last one to two hours and are completely open and FREE to the public. No prior experience is required, and there is no registration necessary to attend.

Below is the list of 2018 severe weather spotter training classes scheduled for southeast Wyoming and the western Nebraska Panhandle. This page will be updated as new classes are scheduled.
