Training Opportunities

How to become a SKYWARN storm spotter!

From the L.A.S.S. Facebook Group:

Welcome to LASS (Lake Area Storm Spotters).

LASS is a place where everyone can get info on weather that is happening around the area. This group is for everyone from Meteorologist to someone just wanting to know what is happening around the area. We have started a group known as the LASS Mobile Spotters and we go out during severe weather and chase the storm as it leaves the lake area and report what we see to the Emergency Management and LASS. Every one of the spotters has gone through many different training courses from the NWS in-seat course to online courses. We are constantly keeping up with the latest training. We also have a Disaster Relief division where after a natural disaster has happen in the lake area the team will mobilize and go help the local victims with anything they may need. Post any kind of weather related picture or post. If we are in Severe Weather Mode then any and all post have to be of the storms in Missouri. Severe Weather Mode you can tell when we are in it because the group photo will change with what is happening. Any and all watches and warnings come straight from the NWS. BULLYING AND PUTTING SOMEONE DOWN WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! If you see something that you don’t think should belong please tag me in it (Eric Hoover) if the spotters are active I won’t get to it until after we have all made it home safely. When the spotters go active I won’t be able to answer questions due to my focus being on the safety of the spotters. If you have any questions feel free to ask at any time.

Feel free to add any and all of your friends and feel free to share LASS with anyone on your friends list.

L.A.S.S. also has a Facebook page which is updated each day with the weather from the NWS Springfield office and graphics for each season’s severe weather.
