About this Event

Join the GFRD as we host the National Weather Service (NWS) for this FREE Skywarn Advanced Storm Spotter Class.

Even with sophisticated technology like radar and satellites, we still need ground truth information from trained weather spotters throughout the year.

During the event, NWS meteorologists will give a detailed look at storm spotting and severe weather operations including:

  • Covering an in-depth look at advanced storm spotting strategies
  • The science of using weather radar in warning operations
  • Interactive simulations that put the viewers in the hot seat

In Arizona, the NWS Phoenix Office forecasts for Maricopa, La Paz, Yuma, southern Gila, & northwest Pinal counties. The NWS Phoenix Office also assists southeast California, by forecasting for Imperial & Eastern Riverside counties.

*You must provide your Storm Spotter ID to register
