...NWS TUCSON IS SEEKING ADDITIONAL SPOTTERS IN RURAL AREAS OF SOUTHEAST ARIZONA…

 

You only need to attend ONE FREE training sessions to be certified as a SKYWARN Spotter. 

Topics covered include cloud features, severe thunderstorm recognition, severe weather safety rules and reporting procedures. These sessions usually last around 90 minutes.

We are always interested in training new spotters from some of our more rural locations, including but not limited to Ajo, Arivaca, Bylas/Calva, Douglas, Eloy, Kearny, Lukeville, Morenci, Red Rock, San Simon, Tombstone, Tubac, and the Tohono O'odham Nation.

Google Meet is now being utilized for any virtual training sessions. You do not need anything other than a computer with an internet connection and speakers to participate. A microphone and webcam are NOT required since we will rely on chat for questions.

This is the Google Meet information for all sessions. Please use this link and/or phone number to access the training on the date that you choose.    NO registration is necessary.

ALREADY A NWS TUCSON SKYWARN SPOTTER?

 

Virtual sessions are certainly open to established spotters who wish to review reporting procedures.  However, NWS Tucson spotters who were trained prior to 2022 will be emailed a link to an abbreviated, spotter training “refresher” video.  That video will be available for your viewing any time before and during Monsoon 2022 for your convenience.

The National Skywarn Training is available on the COMET MetEd site.
