2020 Storm Spotter Training Schedule

The National Weather Service will be hosting 15 storm spotter courses throughout the state in 2020.  

Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Norman conduct storm spotter training sessions each year to help prepare spotters for the upcoming severe weather season. The NWS conducts the training at the invitation of local emergency management officials who organize the training and who, in most cases are responsible for maintaining their local storm spotter network.

The Oklahoma Federal Executive Board, in partnership with the National Weather Service, provides up to date information on inclement weather impacting the state of Oklahoma to all federal agencies.
