SkyWarn Weather Spotters are a National Weather Service team of volunteers, trained to observe and report significant weather. Weather spotters support their local community and emergency managers by providing the NWS with timely and accurate severe weather reports. These reports are an integral part of the NWS mission to help save lives and property through flood and weather watches, warnings and advisories.

Accurate and reliable weather information from the general public is often difficult to obtain. The NWS has found that trained weather spotters greatly improve information quality. The NWS works with other volunteer organizations in the SkyWarn Weather Spotter program, such as Amateur Radio, the American Red Cross, and local emergency managers.

The course will be on Tuesday, May 10 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Tri-County Hospital Conference Center, 415 N. Jefferson St., Wadena. Please call Wadena County Emergency Management at (218) 631-7795 if you are able to attend or email scott.mckellep@co.wadena.mn.us and include your name and return phone number. There is no cost to attend.
