Information about trained weather spotters, NOAA web site>>

Severe Weather Spotters are a vital link in the timely and accurate flow of weather information into and out of weather forecast offices. Storm Spotter training is available to the public as conducted by the local NOAA/NWS Forecast Office on an annual scheduled basis. If you are interested in attending these training sessions and becoming a spotter, please contact your local NOAA/NWS Forecast office or the national coordinator:

CLASS ON JUNE 9TH:

The National Weather Service (NWS) Detroit/Pontiac Office is hosting an opportunity for Skywarn Training in 2014 for the citizens of Southeast Michigan.  The training will be a WEBINAR on Monday, June 9th from 7 p.m. to 815 p.m

The training is reserved for residents of Southeast Michigan.   The training is also limited to the first 150 people that register.  Since the training is through an internet connection and conference call, families are encouraged to register once and participate from one connection/computer.   To register please e-mail Rich Pollman at.richard.pollman@noaa.gov

This training will be canceled if there is a threat of severe weather on June 9th.

The Skywarn Training Class will feature topics such as weather safety, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, what to report to the NWS, and how to report to the NWS.  The Webinar will use the Join Me internet client.  Please be sure to give yourself enough time (about 15 minutes prior to the start) to download the necessary software to participate.

We look forward to discussing the Skywarn topics with you on June 9th.
