About SKYWARN

imagesCAVGRSYQ

SKYWARN is the National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer weather spotters. Storm spotters come from many walks of life, including fire fighters, law enforcement, and amateur radio operators. SKYWARN spotters coordinate with local emergency management officials and send reports of weather based phenomena to the NWS. In addition to serving as a community’s first line of defense against dangerous storms, spotters provide important information to warning forecasters who make critical warning decisions. SKYWARN storm spotters play a critical role of giving the NWS vital ground truth data, which helps the NWS perform our primary mission, to save lives and property.

NWS Nashville spotter  training classes are FREE, open to the public, and last about two (2)  hours. No prior training is necessary and no pre-registration is  required unless otherwise noted. For further information, contact Tom Johnstone (Warning Coordination Meteorologist) at (615) 754-4633 or by email.

NOTE: Classes may be canceled with short notice due to severe weather. Be sure to check the NWS Nashville web site on the day of the class or contact the class location about cancellations. All classes are basic except where indicated
