Weather Spotter Training Offered in Oakland County

Are you a weather watcher at heart? Here's your chance to get some official training.

Oakland County Homeland Security Division is offering classes for local residents who are interested in becoming weather spotters. 

Skywarn training gives an individual the basic tools needed to be a severe weather spotter. Starting with a blue sky, individuals are taught the basics of thunderstorm development, storm structure, what features to look for and where to find them.

While new technological and scientific tools have advanced the National Weather Service (NWS) capability to predict severe weather, the trained spotter remains essential to the NWS warning process. The more trained eyes there are in the field during a severe weather event, the better the service to the public will be.

Skywarn Spotter Classes are offered free of charge and typically last two hours.

To make your reservations go to oakgov.com/homelandsecurity and click on the Skywarn logo to register call 248-858-5300.
