(Neb.)-Spotter Training Course Open To Everyone
(Chadron)-Even though there is a chance of snow in the forecast for the area near the end of the week, spring officially begins Wednesday, and spring weather should soon be following. Although many have heard the rhyme, “April showers bring May flowers,” they may also bring severe thunderstorms.
People in the Nebraska Panhandle are used to the spring storms, but it is always a good idea to become more educated, just in case those storms become severe to ensure the safety of family, and also help warn others.
A severe weather spotter training course will be held Tuesday evening, beginning at 6 pm, at the Chadron City Council Chambers. John Griffith with the National Weather Service in Cheyenne will conduct the free training, which is open to the public.
Griffith has been the administrator of the class for many years, and although he is an expert on severe weather, the class is geared for those without a lot of storm knowledge. People who wish to attend the training are encouraged to bring a notebook and pen to take notes. In prior years, a basic spotter training guide was included in the presentation, but with budget cuts, Griffith said he is not sure if the new books will be available on Tuesday night.
No pre-registration is required for the class. For more information, contact Barb at 432-0505.
