DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- If you're one of those people who can always tell your family members, neighbors, and even strangers what to expect weather-wise, then you will want to take part in an upcoming National Weather Service training event on Thursday, May 11.

Held from 7 to 9 p.m., the service will offer Skywarn™ training for any resident interested in becoming a weather spotter for the National Weather Service.

Skywarn™ is a nationwide network of volunteer weather spotters who report to and are trained by the National Weather Service (NWS).

Spotters report many forms of significant or severe weather such as severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, heavy snow, and flooding. They act as the eyes and ears on the ground to help the NWS provide better services, NWS officials said.

This session will teach participants the basics of thunderstorm development, fundamentals of storm structure, identifying potential severe weather features, how to report information, and more, NWS officials said.

Training will be conducted at the Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response, at 392 Creek Road in the Town of Hyde Park.
