SKYWARN training sessions scheduled in Heath, Huntington

Trained spotters can pick up on dangerous conditions radar may miss

HEATH, Mass. (WWLP) – If you are interested in learning about severe weather, and how to help keep your neighbors safe, you are invited to attend National Weather Service SKYWARN training sessions scheduled for this week and next week.

SKYWARN training provides information on how to recognize severe weather, and notify the National Weather Service of severe conditions. SKYWARN spotters are invaluable during severe weather situations, because their observations can pick up on dangerous conditions that radar may miss. Their information is used by the NWS to issue warnings at critical moments.

SKYWARN spotter training held at 22News

The next SKYWARN training session will be held Thursday night from 6:30 to 9:00 P.M. at the Heath Community Hall, located at 1 West Main Street in Heath.

The final session of the season will be held next Tuesday, May 16, at Stanton Hall, located at 26 Russell Road in Huntington.
