2022 Virtual Advanced Spotter Training Course

Saturday, April 30 ⋅ 9:00am – 12:00pm

SKYWARN spotters are volunteers who become the “eyes and ears” of the National Weather Service. Spotters serve their communities by acting as a valuable source of information when dangerous storms approach!

This special presentation of our Advanced Spotter Class will be a 3-hour session that gets into greater detail about the details of severe weather. We’ll be doing presentations about mesoscale analysis, using radar to analyze storms, advanced spotting techniques and thunderstorm structure, and a case study of a severe event from the 2021 season.

Two notes in advance of this session:
• Attendance at one of our Basic spotter training classes before the Advanced class is recommended, though not required.
• We strongly recommend joining from a computer for full-screen viewing, and testing your audio capabilities in advance.
