Workshop: SkyWarn Training Program

The SkrWarn Training Program will be hosted by Warning Coordination Meteorologist Richard
Pollman of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Detroit Weather Forecast
Office in White Lake, Michigan.

In the early 1970's, SkyWarn was developed as a volunteer program as a cooperative effort between the National Weather Service and local emergency management representatives. Now there are nearly 290,000 trained weather spotters across the country, and they report severe weather to the National Weather Service (NWS), helping keep their communities safe.

A SkyWarn spotter's main responsibility is to identify and describe severe local storms. Information provided by SKYWARN spotters enables the NWS to issue more timely and accurate warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and flash floods.

He is going to discuss:
  • Basics of thunderstorm development
  • Fundamentals of storm structure
  • Identifying potential severe weather features
  • What information to report
  • How to report information
  • Basic severe weather safety
This is a FREE seminar, but they are requesting that you call in advance to reserve your spot at 248-473-1800.
