Weather spotters needed

April 1st, 2010    Author: Staff Report    Filed Under: Community

Are you one of those people glued to NOAA weather radio waiting for the next forecast?  Are you fascinated by tornadoes and super cell thunderstorms?

If so, you might want to take the next step and become an official weather spotter.  The Clermont County Emergency Management Agency will hold Weather Spotter Training on Tuesday, April 6 at the Goshen Middle School Cafeteria, located at 6692 Goshen Road.  The free training will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The guest speaker for the training is National Weather Service meteorologist Mary Jo Parker.  Topics to be covered during the training include conditions that spawn tornadoes and identifying various cloud formations.

April through June is considered tornado season locally. More than 1,000 tornadoes strike the United States each year, more than any other country on the planet. When dangerous weather threatens, seconds can save lives.

Anyone in the community interested in helping the National Weather Service track weather patterns is invited to take part in the free training, including citizens, police, fire, emergency services personnel, school groups, scout troops, and 4-H clubs.

For more information about Weather Spotter Training or to register for the session, call (513) 732-7661.
