Anyone interested in learning more about severe weather can show up to the seminar room at Siloam Springs High School at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 23. The class is free and open to the public. No registration is required. Ed Calianese, the Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the Tulsa Forecast Office of the National Weather Service, will lead the class.
According to the National Weather Service, even with today's high-tech radars and computer analysis, there's still a need for human observation of storms. Weather spotters offer real-time verification of what's on the radar and helps improve the accuracy of severe weather watches and warnings.
For more information on Thursday's Storm Spotter Training Class, call Lieutenant Bryan Austin at (479) 524-4118.
