Find us on Facebook @metroskywarn

You may now access your Metro Skywarn profile at Metro Skywarn home page. You must be a MSW spotter and have a MSW spotter ID card with a 3 or 4 digit number. Sky Watchers, those with IDs that start with a County name and the general public are not eligible for access. Since we have around 1200 active MSW members, it's unlikely we will open the webpage to everyone. But the general public can read most everything here.
 
Your account has already been activated if you have been a spotter for a while. If you have just trained, there will likely be a week or so delay before your data gets entered.
 
Hint: Try to recover your password first using the "Forgot Login?" link under the login box, using your email address and username. You can use "Forgot Login?" to find out your username, too. If your email address is not in the system, follow these instructions:
 
If you continue to have problems, email us with the following information:
  1. Your Email Address (each user requires a unique email address)
  2. Your Metro Skywarn ID #
  3. Your Call Sign (if you have one)
Then you log in with your username as your call or your SWID number (if you don't have a ham call). Then put in your temporary password. Once you are logged in you can correct your information and change your password.
 
Please fill in your profile details. No contact information will ever be shared with anyone other than MSW Instructors, Board members, Net Control Operators, and NWS staff. They may contact you regarding severe weather in your area. If you choose to have a public profile, only registered spotters will see your name call, and MSW ID number. Your email, address and phone numbers will never be shown. Spotters will see a link to send you an email via a web form. Your email will only be known if your reply to an email sent by that form.
 
We welcome you to our online community and trust that together we will protect the community and have some fun doing so.

Kind Regards,

Dave Johnson, N0KBD
Metro Skywarn Board Vice-Chair
