The Allen County Skywarn net does not expect to activate for this week’s winter storm, because the National Weather Service doesn’t typically winter storm reports as immediately as it needs severe weather reports.
We encourage spotters, however, to report winter storm impacts directly to US National Weather Service Northern Indiana via one of the following methods.
* Email the office at W-IWX.Webmaster@noaa.gov.
* Post a report on Twitter and include the string, @NWSIWX in your tweet.
The office will be especially interested in visibility reports (how far you can see in the blowing snow), snow depth reports (see this web page for instructions on creating valide depth measurements), wind damage reports and other impact reports.
Remember to use “TEL” format: Time of occurence, Event (what happened) and Location.
