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 were conducted online. This training season has ended, but check back again occasionally to see if we have added any special sessions (such as around the annual Open House, usually in October or November). Otherwise, please join us for the 2022 spotter training sessions, probably beginning in January or February of 2022.

If you're interested in being a spotter and are looking for more training materials, visit our "Becoming a Spotter" page - http://www.weather.gov/oun/skywarn-spotter. You can also find training materials on our YouTube channel - http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhzMIjoK81fGyAj0gvvZYRjVHEJ9JNJne
