Free Weather Spotter Training Class Tonight In Juneau

4/10/17 – A free weather spotter class will be held tonight (Mon) in Juneau. Dodge County Emergency Management Director Amy Nehls says the class is for anyone interested in learning more about thunderstorms and tornados, or even becoming a trained weather spotter volunteer. The class will be taught by officials with the National Weather Service and will cover beginner, intermediate and advanced concepts. Nehls says even if you have attended seminars in the past, new information can be gathered by attending. She says recent budget cuts have led the National Weather Service to eliminate the live presentations in some counties but the Dodge County class attracts some of the state’s largest crowds. No pre-registration is required for the free, two-hour training seminar which begins at 6:30pm tonight. The class is in a different location that recent years at the Dodge County Administration Building in Juneau. Nehls and Deputy Emergency Management Director Joe Meagher will be our guests this afternoon on WBEV’s Community Comment beginning at 12:35pm.
