The primary mission of the National Weather Service is to save lives and property through timely warnings and forecasts. Yes, we depend on Doppler radar, state-of-the-art satellite imagery and ever-improving supercomputers, but many small scale features cannot be detected by these. Therefore, volunteer weather spotters will always be “the eyes and ears” of the National Weather Service in reference to its warning program. An effective Skywarn Weather Spotter program is essential for the NWS to fulfill our mission of protecting life and property and enhancing our nation's economy. 

BASIC COURSE:

  • Up to three hours in length, free of charge
  • Learn to identify hazardous weather features
  • Find out when we would like a call from you (certain thresholds & criteria must be met)
  • Elementary to intermediate meteorological concepts are taught
  • Prerequisite to the ADVANCED COURSE (goes much deeper into the theory)
  • For more information, please call John Fausett at 575-589-4088 ext 223
