Skywarn is a program sponsored by your National Weather Service Office in conjunction with your local Emergency Management Organization. It is a group of trained volunteers that watch the skies during severe weather and relay reports back to your local Emergency Management Official and/or the National Weather Service (NWS). These volunteers provide valuable information to the NWS to improve the warning program which could save lives and prevent property damage in your community.
If you or your community is interested in sponsoring a Skywarn Program, now is the time to reserve your training session. The Houston/Galveston National Weather Service will be conducting Skywarn classes during the months of January, February and March before the spring severe weather season begins in April and May. These training sessions last around 3 hours and can be scheduled during the day...in the evening or even on Saturday to fit your schedule.
Check out the links below for the latest Skywarn program schedule for southeast Texas. If you live in or near these communities and are interested in becoming a Skywarn Spotter you are invited to attend one of these sessions. For further information on particular programs please contact Dan Reilly at 281.337.5074 or listen to NOAA Weather Radio in your area for information on these programs as they come closer.
