SkyWarn’s Three Goals

  1. Gather first hand reports of weather events which meet or exceed severe thresholds (as defined by the NWS) and pass them on to the local Forecast office in a timely manner;
  2. Disseminate severe weather information to spotters in the field so they may better prepare themselves, their families, and/or their organizations;
  3. Provide timely severe weather information to local, county and state officials as needed.

Current Weather Data

There are a number of great sources of weather information available on the Internet. SCARS has a number of links from the Storm Prediction Center, available on the weather page.
