Forecasters from the National Weather Service in Norman conduct storm spotter training sessions each year to help prepare spotters for the upcoming severe weather season. The NWS conducts the training at the invitation of local emergency management officials who organize the training and who, in most cases are responsible for maintaining their local storm spotter network.
The training sessions are typically about two hours long and cover fundamental information that every spotter needs to know, with a focus on safety, identification of key weather features and proper reporting procedures. This session is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about being a spotter. Tuesday March 15, 6:30 pm at the Canadian Valley Technology Center, El Reno campus, no registration required.
