a Boat ? - Become a Marine Weather Spotter
Here is your
opportunity to "contribute to the cause" by helping the National Weather
Service get as much information about the current weather as possible.
With few official weather observation sites on the Great Lakes, the
weather office is always looking for more observations from its trained
weather spotters. If you are interested in becoming a spotter, just
read through the course material provided below to understand what we are
looking for and how to take marine weather observations.
Then drop us an
email and we will send you a marine decal like the one
above. Just affix to the dash on your boat and you can call toll free to give us
weather observations when conditions warrant.
