2015 Severe Storm Spotter Training

   

    Below is a list of upcoming spotter classes that have been scheduled in the NWS Omaha, NE county warning area. The classes last between 1 1/2 and 2 hours, and provide a basic understanding of thunderstorm structure, spotting techniques, reporting criteria, and procedures. There is no need to register, simply attend a class near your location. Or if a class has not been scheduled in your county, please feel free to attend a class in a neighboring county at your convenience. Additional classes will continue to be added in the future, so please check back to see if a class has been added for your area.
