Here’s an online Advanced Skywarn Training class that is being held online over webinar.  This is presented by NWS Austin/San Antonio office.

NWS Austin/San Antonio offers SKYWARN severe weather training to allow citizens, first responders, emergency management, amateur radio operators, and volunteer organizations the opportunity to learn about severe weather preparedness and safety. Besides learning about severe weather topics specific to South Central Texas, procedures for reporting severe weather to the local Austin/San Antonio National Weather Service Office are also covered. Scheduled training sessions are free and open to the general public.   

The Advanced class dives more in depth into severe weather forecasting, doppler radar, and severe thunderstorm - tornado outbreak examples. 

It is highly suggested that you take or review a Skywarn Basic class before participating in an Advanced training.
