Metro Skywarn is a member of the SKYWARN network. SKYWARN is the National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer severe weather spotters. SKYWARN spotters support their local community and government by providing the NWS and their local emergency managers with timely and accurate severe weather reports. These reports, when integrated with modern NWS technology, are used to inform communities of severe weather conditions that could threaten life and/or property. Metro Skywarn, Inc. is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit that operates an amateur radio SKYWARN network and trains SKYWARN spotters in the greater metropolitan area of the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.

Metro Skywarn Classes are now posted and open for registration –  find them on the Calendar  page.

A word on the Spotter Cards…There are essentially 3 individuals working on getting everyone added to database and getting cards out…please be patient as there are a number of classes with 70 plus participants to enter.  There is no quick-do to process all of the info, and our trainers also have day jobs.  While they say 2 weeks, its really closer to 3 to 4…Thanks.

From Dave’s sister, Mary Mote
