Skywarn Spotter Training classes have been scheduled this spring across Southeast Lower Michigan. These free sessions are presented by the National Weather Service and the local emergency management office. The Skywarn Spotter class will typically last about one and a half hours. The presentation covers a review of the 2012 severe weather season, thunderstorm hazards and safety, severe thunderstorm and tornado development, and methods of observing and reporting severe weather.
In some cases, class size is limited. Please contact the local Emergency Management Office where the Skywarn Spotter Training is scheduled to reserve your place.
If you cannot make one of the Skywarn classes this year, there are a couple of new alternatives for Skywarn Training. A new online Skywarn training is available through the NOAA MetEd web site. Currently there are two courses, each taking about one hour to complete...The Role of the Skywarn Spotter and Skywarn Spotter Convective Basics.
There will also be another webinar Skywarn Training classes conducted by the NWS Detroit/Pontiac office. The webinar is scheduled for Monday, June 3 at 7 p.m. Look for the webinar details in the Top News section of our web page about 2 to 3 week prior to the webinar.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Skywarn spotter training class!
