SKYWARN Spotter training set for White Rock

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

A three-hour SKYWARN spotter training class is scheduled for 6 p.m. July 24 in Fire Station 3 at 129 N.M. 4 in White Rock.

Los Alamos Emergency Manager Philmont Taylor explained that anyone wishing to become a SKYWARN weather spotter can fulfill their training requirement by attending this class.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Albuquerque is currently recruiting SKYWARN Spotters in its County Warning and Forecast Area, which includes Los Alamos and Rio Arriba counties as well as Sandoval, Santa Fe, Taos, and other counties in northern and central New Mexico.

“The purpose of the SKYWARN program is to train members of the general public to recognize and report severe weather to the NWS,” Taylor said.

Visual detection and confirmation of severe weather by SKYWARN spotters, he said, in conjunction with advanced technology such as Doppler Radar play a key role in the process of warning the general public about impending severe weather.

“Warnings for severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and flash floods, which are issued by the NWS, are communicated to local emergency managers who take appropriate actions to protect life and property of citizens in their jurisdictions,” Taylor said.
