Skywarn is a free program created by the National Weather Service (NWS) to improve weather warning services in the US.  Storm Spotter volunteers serve as severe weather spotters for the NWS and local emergency management programs, and generally have two things in common - an interest in the weather and a desire to serve their community.

 

- Basics of thunderstorm development

- Fundamentals of storm structure

- Identifying potential severe weather features

- Information to report

- How to report information

- Basic severe weather safety
