The Charlottesville-UVA-Albemarle Office of Emergency Management is hosting a National Weather Service (NWS) SKYWARN class on Monday, April 17, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. This is a free class taught by the NWS that is designed to educate the public on weather threats in this area, as well as strengthen the ties between the NWS and the local community. Upon completion of the course, participants will be registered in the NWS spotter program. The more spotters the NWS has out there, the faster vital information gets to the NWS forecasters who make the decisions to issue lifesaving weather warnings. Register by April 13 »
