Skywarn is an effort to save lives during severe weather
emergencies by expanding networks of spotters and by encouraging the
widest possible participation in tornado warning programs. There is
no way to stop tornadoes and not all tornadoes show up on radar, but
they can be seen. Lives can be saved. Only one instrument can detect
a tornado or funnel with complete certainty, the human eye.
We will offer one class, both Basic and Advanced with updated
material. The class will last approximately two hours plus some time
for questions and answers. While new technological and scientific
tools have advanced our capability to predict severe weather, the
trained spotter remains essential to our warning process. It goes
without saying that the more trained "eyes" we have in the field
during a severe weather event, the better our service to you and the
public will be. More concern, more spotters, more eyes are needed.
Lend us yours – learn SKYWARN!
