CAL U TO HOST TRAINING FOR WEATHER SPOTTERS

Share | |

Posted on March 24, 2016

The Department of Earth Sciences and the Cal U Meteorology Club will host free SKYWARN® weather spotter training at 6 p.m. March 30 in Eberly Hall, Room 110.

The training is provided by the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh, a SKYWARN partner. The training will include safety tips and ways for volunteers to identify and report severe weather.

SKYWARN is a volunteer program with nearly 300,000 trained spotters nationwide. The main responsibility of a trained spotter is to identify and describe severe local storms. Spotter observations, along with other data, help the NWS to issue more timely and accurate warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods.

Visit Cal U

Cal U students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the public, are invited to participate in the free SKYWARN training.

Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance.
