National Weather Service Storm Spotter Training

Clinton County Emergency Management will host Storm Spotter Training presented by staff of the National Weather Service on February 27, 2013 7:00PM at the Plattsburg High School Performing Arts Center, 800 Frost St. Plattsburg.

Trained Weather Spotters provide critical ground-truth reports on severe weather to the National Weather Service and local Emergency Management, enabling more accurate forecasting, weather warnings, and life-saving measures to be taken. Without well trained spotters in the field, the ability to accurately and reliably warn the public of approaching severe weather is nearly impossible. Please plan on attending to become more informed on how severe weather forms, how to safely watch for severe weather, and how to report you observations to authorities.

Training will be presented by a National Weather Service meteorologist. Information and presentations will be available from amateur radio operators with the Northwest Missouri Amateur Radio Emergency Service Group, Clinton County Emergency Management, and area storm chasers.

Bring your NOAA all-hazards weather radio and let us program it for you.
