Be a Storm Spotter


Whether you are interested in becoming a serious spotter or just taking the class for fun, the National Weather Service’s ‘Skywarn’ storm spotter class is a great way to learn about severe weather.

The spotter training course introduces the spotter to the NWS warning system and shows the hazards associated with severe thunderstorms.  Spotters are shown what to look for when observing thunderstorms.  Examples of downburst winds, wall clouds, funnel clouds, and tornadoes are shown and explained.  Local severe weather climatology and basic severe weather meteorology are covered as well.  Spotters are also instructed on how to report their observations to the NWS. The class lasts two hours and features slides, videos, and a video quiz.  The class is free and open to the public.  “Skywarn’ Storm Spotters class is hosted by the MISSISSIPPI COUNTY OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT  OFFICE & MISS CO AMATEUR RADIO ASSOCIATION.
