‘Weather spotter’ class offered

As we gear up for another active weather season this spring, the National Weather Service (NWS) needs your help to spot possible severe weather. On Saturday, March 2, the National Weather Service is conducting a two-hour program at Roane State, Oak Ridge Campus, Goff Room 107, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Each participant will receive an official NWS Weather Spotter Certificate and ID. Advance registration is required. It is suggested that potential participants register soon.

This is not a storm chasing class.

Spotter training classes (schedule - https://www.weather.gov/mrx/skywarn_classes ) are usually taught in the late winter and early spring at various locations across the state.
