Become a Spotter

 

You must be at least 18 years old, be able to observe weather (though no instruments are required), and have access to a telephone or be an amateur radio operator so you can relay your reports. Note: You do not have to be an amateur radio operator to be a SKYWARN SPOTTER. You also must take a SKYWARN class which is a free, informative, fun filled 2 to 3-hour seminar that teaches you the basics of how SKYWARN operates, how to spot and report severe weather. After completing the class, you will receive a spotter ID number. All SKYWARN Spotter Training Courses are free and are held between May and September (there are no classes in June, July, and August) in various sites through the 34 county Mount Holly Forecast Coverage Area within most of New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, Eastern Maryland and Delaware. If you are interested in obtaining training, please go to our Training Page where a list of training sessions will be posted as soon as they are scheduled.
