It's that time of year again. Severe Weather season will be ramping up over the next couple of months.
Does the weather interest you? Are you looking to volunteer? If you answered yes to both of those questions, the Skywarn Storm Spotter Training courses will be for you!
The advancements in weather technology over the years has improved forecasting severe weather but eyes are still needed in the field. By adding spotters in the field, meteorologists can obtain real-time storm reports of what's happening across the area. With these real-time reports from trusted observers, it helps enhance the credibility and improve safety during the severe weather situation at hand.
Classes are free and open to anyone wishing to attend. Courses will last around 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Eight one-time courses will be taking place across southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. Here's the quick list. All times are 6:30 PM unless otherwise noted.
If you can't make it to any of the dates listed above, a couple of online webinar classes are available. For the above classes, please e-mail email@example.com for registration.
