EVEN WITH THE ADVANCEMENTS IN WEATHER TO HELP IDENTYIFY STORMS...NOTHING BEATS FIRST HAND ACCOUNTS.
EVERY YEAR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PUTS ON A STORM SPOTTER TRAINING SEMINAR.
THE SEMINAR WILL COVER THE WATCH AND WARNING SYSTEM...TALK ABOUT IDENTIFYING FEATURES OF POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS WEATHER... AND THE VISUAL CHARACTERISITICS OF SEVERE WEATHER...ALONG WITH OTHER TOPICS.
Lois Ristow - "Storm spotters are the eyes and ears of the National Weather Service. With the technology and radar they can spot a lot of activity now, that they missed before, but they still need people out in the field to tell them what exactly is going on, so they can verify those images on the radar."
THE SPOTTER SEMINAR WILL TAKE PLACE TONIGHT...AT SEVEN 0' CLOCK....FREE OF CHARGE, IN THE AUDITORIUM ROOM AT CVTC.
ANYONE IS WELCOMED..AND NO PRE-REGISTRATION IS NEEDED.
