What is SKYWARN?
(Note: This article is a compilation of oral histories from several sources with years of experience in SKYWARN. The only well documented source is Galway, 1989. Gropper, 1993 had no citations so may also be of the oral tradition.

SKYWARN is the National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer severe weather spotters. SKYWARN Spotters support their local community and government by providing the NWS and there local emergency managers with timely and accurate severe weather reports. These reports, when integrated with modern NWS technology, are used to inform commmunities of the proper actions to take as severe weather threatens.
