2021 Skywarn Storm Spotter Training

Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Norman conduct storm spotter training sessions each year to help prepare spotters for the upcoming severe weather season. The NWS conducts the training at the invitation of local emergency management officials who 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. The schedule below includes links to register for whichever session is most appropriate for you. If you live in the counties listed for a particular session, it would be best for you to attend that session. If you cannot attend the session for your county, or you do not live in our service area, please try one of the "Open" sessions.
