The second of two SKYWARN storm spotter training sessions in the Fort Wayne area happens Monday, March 17, at 6 p.m. (note the earlier starting time vs. the February training in Columbia City), at Wells County Community Center, 1240 S. 4-H Road, Bluffton, Ind. The National Weather Service (NWS) will not conduct a spotter training session in Fort Wayne in 2014.
Registration is not required but is highly recommended. Why? If weather requires the NWS to cancel the training, registrants will receive notification via email. If you don’t register, you risk wasting a trip to Bluffton.

The National Weather Service requests that all participants complete online storm spotter training before attending a live training session. If you completed the online training last year and are confident that you remember the material, it is not necessary to view the online training again this year.
