Weather Spotters

We will be doing online weather spotter training this Thursday evening, starting at 6:30 pm. As the weather yesterday showed, the quiet summer weather has ended, with our severe weather/wet season starting.  This training is
optional, but if you need training/re-training you can sign up below.  If you know someone who is interested, please forward them the link.

It’s recommended to install the free Webinar software (provided through the link) before the meeting time, as it can take several minutes to download and set up.
