Come to this year's National Weather Service Weather Spotter Training and learn the structure and movement of severe storms, how to identify important storm features, and how to stay safe during severe weather.

Each year, the community gathers to learn the ins and outs of severe weather hazards and what they can do to help keep our community safe. In the past, this class has attracted a number of community leaders, public officials, and news stations from all over the region.

The National Weather Service Weather Spotter Training will be held at Highland Community College on Thursday, March 2, 2017. The class will run from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Registration will begin at 6:00pm. As always, this event is FREE and open to the public. We encourage your attendance each year and new faces are always welcome!

Completion of this class allows you to become a certified Storm Spotter for the National Weather Service (NWS) Quad Cities' office.
