We are down to our last few storm spotter training sessions for 2021, so if you have not signed up your spotters we are nearing the end of the available sessions. These training sessions will begin at 7 PM on each of the dates and last for approximately an hour. 

 Many of you have already taken advantage of this training, so going forward we may need to combine the upcoming sessions to a single date. So please register for the date you need, and given sufficient registrants we will present that date.  

Each date is immediately followed by the corresponding registration link for that session. Attendees MUST REGISTER AHEAD OF TIME for the training. We would recommend you copy and paste only the registration link(s) for the date(s) you want your spotters to train. Please do not distribute this to the general public. It is only for your official storm spotter groups.

Severe Weather Awareness Week #SWAW


March 1-5 awareness campaign calls for preparing and planning for tornadoes, severe storms, lightning and flooding


We are going to kick off the week with the Storm Spotter Training.  The class will be offered virtually only.  This training sessions will begin at 7 PM and last for approximately an hour.  Attendees MUST REGISTER AHEAD OF TIME! You may receive POST credit for this course.  You will need to register and send me your POST identification number, and then the proof of completion afterward.  I will send to the state and send you the certificate for your records.


Monday March 1, 2021



An outline of Severe Weather Awareness Week is below.


Monday: Receiving Weather Info/Making a plan

Tuesday:  Tornadoes - Live Tornado Drill at 10 AM

Wednesday: Lightning

Thursday: Hail/Wind/Severe Thunderstorms

Friday: Flooding





Note, in years past we urged people to practice sheltering as if it were a real warning. Here is what we are telling people this year,


"In this time of COVID-19, the NWS encourages everyone to abide by health and safety guidelines, including social distancing and wearing a mask per local directives. If that's not possible during the tornado test, then consider participating by simply sheltering-in-place or discussing sheltering options/plans among co-workers/family members."
