SKYWARN Weather Class

Skywarn

Each year, the National Weather Service in Midland conducts Skywarn spotter training courses across portions of west Texas and southeast New Mexico. NWS spotter training is open to the public at no charge.

This weather course is an opportunity for families to prepare for the upcoming severe weather season by providing information that can be used to develop severe weather safety plans. Additionally, different techniques are discussed for determining storm severity.  By completing the two hour course, attendees become NWS Skywarn spotters. Members of Skywarn, a volunteer weather spotting group, help relay ground truth information about thunderstorms to local officials and to the National Weather Service. The NWS uses this vital information in conjunction with radar and satellite information during severe weather operations.  Please join us, along with friends and family, at any of the National Weather Service Skywarn spotter training courses scheduled for your area.

If you have any pictures that we can use in a future Skywarn presentation please email them to Amber Hluchan (amber.hluchan@noaa.gov).  If you have any questions please contact Amber Hluchan (amber.hluchan@noaa.gov).
