UPDATE: The National Weather Service said that due to overwhelming support and interest in the event, the venue has been changed to accommodate a larger crowd. The class will now be held at FDC East, located at 375 Printers Parkway in Colorado Springs, (see tweet below).

With Spring now in full swing, it’s time for storm spotting training hosted by the Pueblo National Weather Service branch. The goal of the training is to prepare the spotter to identify hazardous weather conditions, how to report that information to the local NWS, and personal safety.

The first session of storm spotter training in Colorado Springs takes place tomorrow night at CSPD Falcon Division. All sessions are free and open to the public, lasting around an hour to an hour and a half.

Morning Meteorologist Sam Schreier will be in attendance, helping to teach parts of the course with the NWS branch as well as answering any questions from people in attendance.
