April 29th Skywarn training 7pm and W2WCR monthly meeting 6:30

April 29th Skywarn training and monthly meeting

Our April meeting will consist of a brief business meeting and then a Skywarn training session. The business portion will begin a 6:30 pm with the Skywarn training to follow at 7pm.  The meeting will be held at UNO's in Queensbury across from Walmart. If you have not been to a Skywarn training session before you will be in for a treat. If you are already skywarn trained then it is probably time to renew. Before the training please register online at   https://www.weather.gov/aly/skywarn

What is Skywarn™?

Skywarn™ is a nationwide network of volunteer weather spotters who report to and are trained by the National Weather Service (NWS). These spotters report many forms of significant or severe weather such as severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, heavy snow, and flooding. The staff at NWS Forecast Office Albany are responsible for issuing local forecasts and severe weather warnings for much of eastern New York, southern Vermont, the Berkshires of western Massachusetts and Litchfield County Connecticut. Skywarn™ Spotters provide an invaluable service by providing ground truth so we can correlate what is seen on radar to what is actually occurring, help warn downstream communities, add value to our statements and warnings, and to verify forecasts and warnings. Spotters act as our eyes and ears helping us provide better services.
