National Weather Service Boulder - Skywarn Severe Weather Spotter Trainings

The National Weather Service in Boulder conducts 25 to 30 spotter training sessions each year mostly during March, April, and May.

These talks are free and open to the public. At each session, the NWS offers basic training followed by advanced training.  By taking the training, you can become a certified Skywarn severe weather spotter after 90 minutes of basic training or stay for the advanced portion of the training.  The National Weather Service will count on you to be their "eyes" out in the field, when trying to verify severe weather across northeast Colorado.   The National Weather Service in Boulder warns for 22 counties and these spotter reports are very helpful in making warning decisions on severe thunderstorms.

The NWS requests that you register with the contact point for the talk you plan to attend.  For more information on Skywarn training, contact
