Severe Weather Spotter Training Schedule

Due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 Virus, all National Weather Service Green Bay in-person storm spotter training classes this spring have been cancelled. CDC guidance continues to suggest that social distancing can be effective at limiting the overall spread of the virus; therefore, we will need to protect attendees and our employees by providing the spotter training via remote means. We are making alternate arrangements for our storm spotter classes this season. Please visit your local county Emergency Management's social media pages or website for specific information.

Storm spotter training for 2020 starts in mid March!

Official spotter training is offered via:

 (2) Self-paced online courses.
