Are you interested in weather? Would you like to help the National Weather Service track and report severe weather events? SKYWARN™ is a volunteer program with nearly 290,000 trained severe weather spotters. These volunteers help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to the NWS.
Forecasters from the National Weather Service (NWS) in Taunton conduct storm spotter training sessions each year These sessions are free and open to anyone who is interested in learning about hazardous weather and the role of a spotter. Spotters must be able to observe the weather, be 16 years or older and need access to a phone to call in reports or be able to report information through the Amateur Radio Network.
Training sessions are approximately 1.5 hours in length. Once you complete the training, you will be an official SKYWARN™ spotter and given a spotter ID.
