SKYWARN “Refresher CD-ROM” Planned

SKYWARN logoEastern Massachusetts amateurs may soon be able to review educational material on a CD-ROM and update their weather spotting credentials, writes NWS Taunton SKYWARN volunteer and South Shore District Emergency Coordinator Carl Aveni, N1FY.

According to Aveni, the SKYWARN “Refresher CD” has been in the planning stages for awhile. “National Weather is trying to work out the logistics of how to keep track of those folks who do the refresher course by way of the CD and then update their spotter IDs.”

N1FY says that the scheme needs to be finalized by the National Weather Service before the CD can be released for actual use.
