The purpose of the SKYWARN® program in Pinellas County Florida is to provide the National Weather Service (NWS) Forecast Office at Tampa Bay with timely and accurate reports of severe weather phenomena so that a timely warning can be issued to the public of dangerous weather conditions that include tornadoes, hail, flooding, and damaging thunderstorm winds.

To learn how you can assist the National Weather Service as a SKYWARN® Spotter, please contact Dave Rockwell, the Pinellas County SKYWARN® Coordinator and check the NWS SKYWARN Training page.

To learn more about SKYWARN® and how it operates within Pinellas County, review the Pinellas County ACS/ARES® SKYWARN® Operations Plan and Standard Operating Procedures document.

Please join us on one of our regular Tuesday Night Nets at 7:30 PM to learn more about SKYWARN® .
