Do You Have an Eye on the Sky?

The National Weather Service is once again in the process of conducting training for our volunteer weather spotters in northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. 

The training session will be held next week, on the evening of Wednesday, November 2nd from 7:00-8:30 pm at Clark County Fire & Rescue’s Dollar Corner Station #26, located at 21609 NE 72nd Avenue in Battle Ground.

The training is for people who want to become part of our network of volunteer weather spotters as well as refresher training for existing weather spotters. They will be trained how to recognize cloud features and other weather phenomena that can produce severe weather as well as the criteria for reporting these elements to our office. This information is directly used in our warning program to help protect lives and property of our citizens. The training is free and open to the general public.

Here is a flyer the program  ….if you are interested in participating in reporting weather-based events as a Weather Spotter, this class is for you.  Now is the time to determine your role in our local community, participating in training is an excellent way to explore your interests and help others!
