Free classes to become a weather spotter


Classes are free and open to the public, but some may require advanced registration.
You do not need to be a resident of the county in which a talk is being held in order to attend.
Each class lasts about 1.5 to 2 hours and is led by a National Weather Service meteorologist
who will discuss techniques and safety for severe weather spotting. Once you attend a class,
you are an officially trained spotter and can report severe weather to your NWS office.
