NWS Shreveport Partners,
Now that we are into the late summer, we’ll soon be approaching our Fall severe weather season. That means it’s time for the Fall 2021 Skywarn Training Season. Unfortunately, due to ongoing COVID restrictions, we will not be able to conduct in-person classes. Therefore, we are going to handle this season much like last Spring. We will teach four virtual courses, and two will use Facebook Live and will not require pre-registration. Two will use GoToMeeting and will require pre-registration. The dates are listed below. These four classes all start at 7:00 pm Central Time.
- Monday, September 27, 2021: 7:00 pm-8:30 pm
- Facebook Live: No registration required
Based on the live viewership from our past virtual classes, we decided that doing a few areawide, all-inclusive courses would be better and probably have better attendance than doing many virtual types targeting specific groups of counties/parishes. If needed, we can conduct one of these virtual classes during regular business hours. However, we do recognize that some groups, such as our law enforcement and fire/rescue folks, may need special classes for their organizations to fulfill annual training requirements. If you are part of these organizations and need to schedule a particular course with us outside of one of the dates listed above, please fill out this Skywarn Class Request Form, and either Charlie Woodrum or Davyon Hill will get in touch with you.
We here at the National Weather Service in Shreveport greatly value our relationships and partnerships with you. I don’t think I can emphasize enough how much we truly rely on you folks in the field who provide us valuable ground truth information. Whether it’s damage reports or snow reports, and for helping to spread the word to promote weather safety before and during hazardous weather. Thank you for everything and for being so understanding as we continue to navigate these difficult times.
