The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has scheduled additional basic and advanced spotter courses via webinar and classroom in the coming weeks. This is a good opportunity for anyone interested in supporting the NWS as a storm spotter to get their basic training and to dig a bit deeper into understanding severe weather with the advanced course.
The last online basic course maxed out the number of participants so make sure you register soon to secure your spot!
I have already received a request to consider the possibility of providing a location to take the advanced class for individuals that do not have appropriate Internet connection speeds or simply would like to take the course with a group. If you have an interest in doing this please let me know and we will look into a potential classroom location in the Thomasville area .
