VIROQUA, WI (Ben Caxton) — The National Weather Service will be holding a SKYWARN Severe Weather Spotter Training in Viroqua on Monday, March 25th. The training will be held in the cafeteria of Viroqua High School starting at 6:30 PM. The class will last around two hours and includes a multimedia presentation. Training is intended for storm spotters or potential storm spotters but is open to the public and free of charge. A review of recent and past severe weather will be included. The NWS relies heavily on actual storm reports from “spotters”, which can include sheriff’s departments, local emergency management officials, police and fire departments, amateur radio operators, or anyone else that has attended one of these classes. Forecasters say these reports can prompt warnings that save lives.
