SKYWARN is a concept developed in the late 1960s that was intended to promote a cooperative effort between the National Weather Service and communities. The emphasis of the effort is often focused on the storm spotter, an individual who takes a position near their community and reports wind gusts, hail size, rainfall, and cloud formations that could signal a developing tornado. Another part of SKYWARN is the receipt and effective distribution of National Weather Service information.

Skywarn is a function of the Four States Amateur Radio Service.  If you would like to become part of the Skywarn, you may contact Arthur, Skywarn Director at KF5VWN AT
