Twice a year (in the spring and again in the fall), the National Weather Service in Huntsville offers FREE basic storm spotter training courses. Storm spotters play a critical role in the severe weather warning process by visually confirming occurences of severe weather. They help meteorologists verify what is being tracked on radar.
The spotter training will be held in various counties in north Alabama and southern Tennessee in the upcoming weeks. For the complete schedule and more information about the Skywarn Spotter Program click here.
