2024 SkyWarn Training Classes Scheduled For Later This Month

The National Weather Service is hosting a SKYWARN Training Storm Spotter program this month. 

According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the classes are designed as both an informational class for the general public and certification training for the serious SkyWarn Spotter.  

The class covers the basics of storm development, storm structure, what constitutes severe weather, and how to report severe weather. Additional information on severe weather safety is also covered. Computer graphics, slides and video clips will introduce the participants to the great variety of storm phenomena which affect the area.

Sessions are scheduled for April 23rd at Kiehl Auditorium in Crookston, and April 24th at the Erskine Community Center.
