Due to COVID-19 concerns, 2021 SKYWARN training classes will again be held virtually. The SKYWARN training sessions will occur on 3 weeknights and 2 weekends. The weeknight sessions will be taught by NWS forecasters, and the weekend sessions taught by Amateur Radio Operators.
Dates and registration information can be seen at NWS Boston/Norton SKYWARN Training Schedule.
All are welcome to attend the training sessions. New individuals who are interested in becoming a SKYWARN spotter can take an optional quiz and will get their SKYWARN spotter number. These sessions count as refreshing their SKYWARN training for existing spotters.
We hope as many individuals as possible can attend these training sessions. We thank all SKYWARN spotters for their continued support of the NWS Boston/Norton SKYWARN program!
