Event description

Description

The SKYWARN® Convection course provides a more in depth training of severe weather hazards and the role of spotters during these events. The course is intended for all levels of expertise, though having attended a Basic class (with any NWS office) is mandatory to attend. We also require you to be at least 14 years of age. Topics to be covered include:

  • Severe weather hazards in the Mid-Atlantic
  • Ingredients and forecasting for severe weather
  • Severe weather statistics
  • Severe weather preparation and safety
  • NWS severe weather products
  • The role of a SKYWARN® spotter in severe weather

This SKYWARN® Spotter Class is offered free of charge from the combined efforts of your local National Weather Service Forecast Office and Arlington County Emergency Services. A National Weather Service meteorologist will teach the class.

Registration is required to attend the class!
