National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Midland/Odessa conduct storm spotter training sessions each year to help prepare spotters for the upcoming severe weather season. The NWS conducts the training in partnership with local emergency management officials who often help organize the training and who, in most cases are responsible for maintaining their local storm spotter network.

All training sessions for 2021 will be conducted online. Each class is free and open to the public. The schedule below includes links to register for whichever session is most convenient for you.

If you're interested in becoming a spotter and cannot attend any of the available classes listed below, feel free to take this online course.
