It may be frigid and snowy now, but warmer weather is on its way… and with it comes the potential for severe weather. The National Weather Service is seeking the public’s help this upcoming season in spotting potential severe weather.
On Saturday, March 2, the National Weather Service will conduct a two-hour free program at Roane State’s Oak Ridge Campus, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, in Goff Room 107.
A presentation by NWS Morristown staff will equip participants with a basic knowledge of storm structure, associated hazards and safety, as well as the importance of real-time, accurate ground-truth reports to the NWS.
Registration is required for this program.
Those who successfully complete the program and fill out required paperwork will earn an official NWS Weather Spotter Certificate and spotter ID.
The program is sponsored by the U.T. Arboretum Society and the National Weather Service in Morristown. To register or for more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (865) 483-7277.
