03/04/2010: "Be A Weather Spotter"

You may not have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing, but if would like to a National Weather Service Spotter, you need to take a class.

Two are offered, on on San Juan Island, and one on Orcas Island.

The National Weather Service will train new and veteran spotters on how to look for and report significant event-driven weather events. Training includes video demonstrations. Spotters are needed, particularly in the out of town and waterfront parts of the San Juan Islands. Ideal spotters will already own basic weather instrumentation, especially an anemometer, or will be interested in buying one soon.
