Why you should attend a severe weather spotter class...even if you don't want to be a spotter!
* Last, but not least, severe weather spotters provide ground and cloud base information that can't be detected by the National Weather Service's (NWS) WSR-88D Doppler Radar system. The earth's curvature and a straight radar beam limit the ability of Doppler Radar to detect things below cloud base the greater the distance from the radar location. Spotters become "field eyes" for the NWS, verifying what the radar sees or does not see!
