In spotter training, a NWS meteorologist will teach the class about identifying storm features and even how to report to the NWS.
Classes will run in southeastern Wisconsin until the beginning of May. Classes are free, but some counties require pre-registration.
According to the National Weather Service's website, storm spotters are part of a volunteer program with more than 350,000 trained severe weather spotters across the country. These spotters help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to the National Weather Service.
