The National Weather Service (NWS) in Goodland and Thomas County Emergency Management invite you to attend a Storm Spotter Class in Colby. This year’s training will be held Wednesday, March 6th at 6:30 pm CST at the Community Building downstairs (285 E 5th).
The class is free of charge and open to anyone with an interest in High Plains weather. This program is conducted only once a year by NWS meteorologists so consider attending this fun and educational training in Colby. The class will discuss Wireless Emergency Alerts, new Impact-Based Warnings, thunderstorm organization and evolution, associated clouds and their meaning, thunderstorm hazards, safety, and what and how to report.
