NWS-Skywarn Weather Spotter Training Set for Lamar



WHAT: SKYWARN Weather Spotter Training by the Pueblo National Weather Service office.

WHERE: Lamar, High School Auditorium, 1900 S. 11th Street.

WHEN: April 2nd, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  

WHO:  Current NWS Pueblo weather spotters and anyone else with an interest in volunteering.

Weather spotters are volunteers who report weather conditions, such as large hail, damaging winds, tornados, snowfall, etc. directly to the Pueblo National Weather Service office via a toll-free 800 telephone number, the internet, or social media.  

The training will include weather safety, how the volunteer weather spotter is involved in the warning decision-making process, and severe weather procedures and identification.  Still photos and videos will be shown in the severe weather procedures and identification section, including local cases.  

Information from weather spotters has often allowed for confirmation of severe weather after an official warning has been issued, and occasionally are the first notice that severe weather has developed in the area.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP to the following e-mail:  thomas.magnuson@noaa.gov. 

In addition, a volunteer weather observer network called CoCoRaHS exists in Colorado.  Those who would like to provide their readings of snowfall and precipitation to the Colorado Climate Center in Ft. Collins each day can easily do so.  For more information, visit this web site-http://www.cocorahs.org
