Hawkeye Hosts Weather Spotter Training

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - Dozens of people attended an annual weather spotter training seminar at Hawkeye Community College Monday night where they learned to identify and report severe weather threats such as thunderstorms and tornadoes in the field.

Forecasters from the National Weather Service say that spotters are helpful since they are often able to spot dangerous weather before the radar is able to pick it up, especially in far away areas. They are also helpful in storm verification.

Those who missed the seminar are able to view the online Webinar on April 16th. There will also be an advanced training seminar at the University of Northern Iowa on April 23rd. More information can be found at http://www.crh.noaa.gov/dmx/?n=spotterinfo.
