    SKYWARN is a volunteer program developed in the early 1970s as a cooperative effort between the National Weather Service and local emergency management representatives. There are now nearly 290,000 trained weather spotters across the country who provide reports of severe weather to the National Weather Service (NWS) and help keep their communities safe.

    The main responsibility of a SKYWARN spotter is to identify and describe severe local storms.

    Information provided by SKYWARN spotters has enabled the NWS to issue more timely and accurate warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and flash floods. Participants at the training session will learn:

    • Basics of thunderstorm development
    • Fundamentals of storm structure
    • Identifying potential severe weather features
    • What information to report
    • How to report information
    • Basic severe weather safety

    The SKYWARN training program will be hosted by Warning Coordination Meteorologist Richard Pollman of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Detroit Weather Forecast Office in White Lake, Michigan. Advance registration is required. For more information or to register, call the Costick Center at 248-473-1800.

    SKYWARN Training Program, sounds like a wonderful program. I'll have to see if there are any programs near Oberlin Ohio, like this. Would enjoy a program like this.
