skywarn logoSkywarn® Coverage Map
For the Baltimore-Washington Forecast Office

        This map shows the area for which the NWS Baltimore-Washington Forecast Office has responsibility. This is the area that our Skywarn® network must cover. The map below also shows the number of trained spotters in each county. Counties with low numbers indicate an intense need for your help. Areas that have high numbers or are listed as saturated are still very important to us, because severe weather can occur on such a localized scale. However, efforts to provide training outside that available at the NWS Office, will focus on those counties with a greater need.
