SkyWarn spotter training will be held Monday, April 8, 2019, at 7 PM in Room 270 of the Government Center. The National Weather Service's SKYWARN® program provides FREE 2-hour training to volunteers in the community who help identify and report severe weather including large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.


SKYWARN® training covers the following topics: 

  • The mission of the National Weather Service and how SKYWARN® spotters play an important role in the warning process. 
  • Thunderstorm formation and the types of thunderstorms. We'll study the meteorological dynamics involved in thunderstorm production and what it takes for a storm to produce damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes. 
  • Visual indicators spotters can look for to identify possible severe weather. This includes types of clouds associated with specific areas of a thunderstorm, how to identify rotation and discriminate between strong and weak rotation, and discriminating between tornadoes and look-a-likes.
