Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

NWS Glasgow Presents SKYWARN 2024

SKYWARN is a volunteer program with between 350,000 and 400,000 trained severe weather spotters across the county. These volunteers help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to the National Weather Service.

A Spotter Talk will occur on Thursday, May 2, 6 p.m., at the Valley County Courthouse, 501 E Court St. During this talk attendees will lean the basics of thunderstorms, fundamentals of storm structure, identifying potential severe weather features, type of information to report, how to report information and basic severe weather safety.

The National Weather Service encourages anyone with an interest in public service to join the program and consider becoming a spotter. The training is free and typically lasts about two hours.

Contact Scott Rozanski by phone 406-228-4042 or email [email protected] with any questions.
