Weather Spotters Training Seminar In Galena Tuesday
The severe weather season is just around the corner and to help you prepare for the unexpected the National Weather Service is teaming up with the Jo Daviess County Emergency Management Agency to host a Weather Spotters Seminar on Tuesday. Emergency Management Coordinator Chuck Pedersen says weather spotters learn how to identify particular storm systems and report them to the NWS. There are currently around 30 weather spotters in Jo Daviess County but more are needed. Weather spotters are very helpful to meteorologists when they are predicting which direction a storm or tornado may be headed. The Weather Spotter Seminar will take place at the Galena Territory Owners’ Club tomorrow at 6:30 pm. The seminar is free and open to the public. Seminars will also be held in Stephenson and Carroll Counties in the coming weeks.
