Our volunteer Storm Spotter program helps fill the gaps in NWS weather radar coverage and verify what the radar sees. Volunteer storm spotters have long been used by communitites to help with storm-siren decision-making, warning issuance, and severe-weather forecasting.
The program will start out by taking advantage of free training and free smartphone/computer apps. If you're interested, simply go to the Online Registration Form and follow the instructions there. The form provides links to the training schedule and also to the website that provides the apps needed to make reports. It also will advise of the short meetings here in the City that each spotter will be required to attend.
