SKYWARNTM Training is Also Available Online!

If you can't attend one of our classes in person, official SKYWARNTM training is available online through the COMET program. COMET is a cooperative program between the National Weather Service and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).

COMET's online course consists of two core topics: 1) Role of the Skywarn Spotter, and 2) Skywarn Spotter Convective Basics. Anyone who completes this online course, passes the associated quiz with a score of 70% or better, and watches a video provided by the National Weather Service in Blacksburg will become an offically trained SKYWARNTM spotter.

Please click here to procede to the training.

Please click here for the NWS Blacksburg video.

When you have completed the training, passed the quiz with 70% or better, and watched the video, please email our Warning Coordination Meteorologist and let him know. Also, in your email, in addition to a small note stating you completed the training and video, please include the following:

  1. Your 911 mailing address or your latitude/longitude to the nearest 4th decimal place
