The National Weather Service continues its storm spotter training courses throughout the region.

Participants can learn how to identify features of strong and severe storms, hail safety, supercell structure and more. These trained spotters will be able to provide valuable real-time severe weather information to the National Weather Service and Springfield-Greene County Office of Emergency Management.

The latest session was held Tuesday night in Greene County.

This year’s storm spotter trainings began in late January for Ozarks’ area residents. Courses continue Thursday and Friday in Vernon and Cedar counties, respectively, and in March in other parts of southwest Missouri. You can view a training schedule here.
