Severe Weather Spotter and Safety Classes
2014 Schedule

The National Weather Service in Grand Junction provides storm identification, spotter training and weather safety classes each spring. These sessions are done in cooperation with county Emergency Management agencies across the area. All training is free, is open for anyone to attend, and is not designed for just storm spotters. Anyone with a desire to learn how to identify severe weather and to learn about the dangers from these storms is encouraged to attend. The Basic "Storm Spotter" and Advanced programs last for about 2 hours each, or a COMBINED Basic and Advanced class may be offered, which will take about 3 hours.
