  • Forecasting and meteorology of flooding
  • Review of flooding cases
  • NWS products for flooding
  • Role of spotters in flooding events


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

PARKING: Park in the fire department parking lot area on the 3rd Avenue side.

Registration is required to attend the class!
