SKYWARN SPOTTER TRAINING -- The National Weather Service is hosting a free class for potential storm spotters. Spotters serve as “eyes on the ground” for the agency in the war against severe weather. Reports help NWS more accurately warn for severe weather and save lives. Training covers the basics of weather safety, identifying hazardous weather features, and how to report weather. The class will be taught by Brian Boyd, senior meteorologist with NWS. The class will be held from 6 – 8:15 p.m. Oct. 16 on the GBC Elko campus. There are possible interactive video sites in Battle Mountain, Ely, Pahrump, West Wendover, and Winnemucca. Call 753-2231 if you would like to participate.
