2015 Severe Weather Spotter Talk Schedule

This is the latest available schedule for Skywarn spotter training sessions in northeast Colorado this spring.  As additional sessions are scheduled they will be added to this schedule.  Each spring we offer spotter training from March into May.  From late May through the summer due to severe weather, Weather Service resources are limited and not readily available for spotter training.

These talks are free and open to the public. At each session we offer basic training followed by advanced training.  You can be a certified Skywarn severe weather spotter after 75 minutes of basic training or stay for the advanced portion of the training.  The National Weather Service will count on you to be our "eyes" out in the field, when trying to verify severe weather across northeast Colorado.   The National Weather Service in Boulder warns for 22 counties, and your reports are very helpful to us as we make warning decisions on severe thunderstorms. 

We request that you register with the contact point for the talk you plan to attend.  In the event of spring snow storms, check this page for possible cancellations and updates.  For more information on Skywarn training, contact Robert.Glancy@noaa.gov
