Severe weather program set for tonight

GREENVILLE — With the 2013 severe weather season about to begin, the National Weather Service in Fort Worth is presenting a program this evening, designed to provide local storm spotters the information they need to continue to serve as the first line of defense in detecting the approach and arrival of severe weather.

The Skywarn severe weather program is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. in the Fletcher Warren Civic Center.

The event is free and is open to anyone interested in learning more about the formation of severe weather.

Meteorologists note that despite improvements in the technology used by the agency, storm spotters are often relied upon when it comes to warning the public of an approaching tornado or other hazardous weather conditions.

The program will discuss the formation and behavior of storms, the production of severe weather, environmental clues which can suggest the possibility of a tornado or other severe weather, spotter reporting procedures, and safety tips.

The program is also designed to teach how to safely serve as a storm spotter.
