NOTTINGHAM, MD—Attention, weather enthusiasts!
The National Weather Service will hold a virtual SKYWARN class for Baltimore County residents next month.
The class will be held 6 – 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
Participants will learn how to identify storms and how to report storm damage.
SKYWARN® is a national network of volunteer severe weather spotters. The spotters are trained by local National Weather Service forecast offices on how to spot severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, and flooding. In some parts of the country, spotters also report snowfall and ice accumulation.
After the class participants will be certified to report storm damage to the National Weather Service.
Those interested can register for the SKYWARN class online here.
