Skywarn is a nationwide network of volunteers trained by the weather service to report significant weather. Skywarn spotters provide observations of tornadoes, hail, wind and significant cloud formations to provide an information base for severe weather detection and verification.
The network is activated whenever there is a threat of severe weather, or the forecast office issues a severe thunderstorm watch, tornado watch or flood watch.
No special equipment is necessary to become a trained weather spotter.
