Weather Spotter Training

2020 Storm Spotter Talks - NWS Sioux Falls Do you have an interest in weather and helping your community? Well we have a great opportunity for you! The National Weather Service Forecast Office in Sioux Falls, in coordination with county emergency managers, are offering storm spotter classes at several locations to prepare for severe weather season. If you would like to assist your local community by becoming a volunteer storm spotter and reporting severe weather to the National Weather Service, or if you simply want to learn more about severe weather, consider attending one of our classes! Classes are normally held in the evening and last approximately 2 hours. Attendees are taught the basics of thunderstorm development, storm structure, the features to look for, and where to find them. What, when and how to report information as well as basic severe weather safety are also covered.
