|Skywarn Training has been completed for
the 2013 season. Please check back in February 2014. The
new schedule will be posted for spring 2014.
Being a storm spotter not only
means dedication, but also training. Each spring the Cleveland
office of the National Weather Service trains members of police
& fire departments, emergency management officials and amateur
radio operators on spotting techniques. Typically the training
is coordinated by a local group (such as an emergency management
agency), and a NWS meteorologist serves as the guest instructor.
The goal of the training is not just to recognize tornadoes,
but to have some understanding of storm structure, which in
turn better prepares the spotter for the extreme and unusual
Training is FREE and open to the public. Please attend any of
the training sessions listed above. You will be trained and
enrolled in the program. You do not need to pre-register.
