Upcoming Storm Spotter Class

Post by tbrents42 » Mon Feb 15, 2016 1:17 pm

Weather forecasts are great, but when severe weather moves into our area, the National Weather Service relies on trained weather spotters to help keep them abreast of developing trends and situations. Weather radar is an excellent tool, but it only tells part of the storm’s story. Combining radar data with observations from trained observers gives the best possible picture of severe storms.

The National Weather Service and Gwinnett's Emergency Management office will host a Storm Spotter class Thursday, February 25 at 7:00pm in the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center auditorium located at 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville. This informative class will focus on how to spot dangerous weather, particularly tornadoes and severe thunderstorm conditions.

The class will be taught by David Nadler, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, and is open to anyone who wants to learn how storms work and about the visual cues to identify storms in their area. Spaces are limited, so pre-register at 770.513.5600 or email ema@gwinnettcounty.com.
