Severe Storm Spotting

SCIENCE 1079, Course Code: 5673

Severe storm spotters are a vital part of the warning process. Spotters provide critical, potentially life-saving information to their communities and surrounding locations - and to National Weather Service forecasters who use the reports to help issue warnings and keep the public updated during severe weather events. The class covers topics related to thunderstorms, tornadoes and safety topics. The class is appropriate for people new to storm spotting, as well as those that need an annual refresher class. Storm spotters must be at least 18 years of age, however the material covered in this class is also suitable as educational information for those under 18.
