What is a Storm Spotter? The Skywarn spotter program is a nationwide network of volunteers
trained by the National Weather Service (NWS) to report significant weather. Anyone is welcome to participate.
Why Skywarn? The NWS's mission is to protect lives and property. When weather conditions
are favorable for severe thunderstorms or tornadoes are expected to develop, a severe thunderstorm or tornado WATCH is issued.
A Severe Thunderstorm or Tornado WARNING is issued when severe weather has been reported by a Skywarn spotter or indicated
by Doppler radar. Skywarn volunteers become the NWS's eyes and ears, helping to provide better weather watch and warning services.
