National Weather Service Skywarn Weather Spotter Class

Contributed by St. Bernard Parish Government

Want to become involved with safety within St. Bernard Parish? Become a SKYWARN Weather Spotter.

SKYWARN is a National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer severe weather observers. Weather spotters support their local community and emergency responders by providing the NWS with timely and accurate ground truth reports of severe weather and its impacts. These reports, when integrated with modern NWS technology, are used to inform communities of the proper actions to take when severe weather occurs.

The key focus of the SKYWARN program is to save lives and property through the use of the observations and reports of trained volunteers. Additional information on the program is available on the NWS SKYWARN Page.

A SKYWARN Weather Spotter Class will be conducted by the NWS on Tuesday, July 12 at 6 p.m. in the Parish Council Chamber, 8201 W. Judge Perez Dr., Chalmette.

For more information, contact the St. Bernard Parish Emergency Operations Office at 504-278-4267 and ask for John Rahaim.
