Skywarn is a program the National Weather Service uses to improve severe storm watches and warnings. Trained volunteers serve as storm spotters. These spotters pass on vital “ground truth” information to forecasters during severe weather events. They are the eyes and ears not only for forecasters, but for the community as a whole Skywarn volunteers come from all walks of life, and generally have two things in common – an interest in weather as well as an interest in serving their community.read more
