11 NWS Training Portal

We once again find ourselves in the middle of Ohio’s Severe Weather Awareness Week.  We hope that as an Ohio District 3 ARES member you were able to check in to one of this morning’s many area SkyWarn nets.

Since severe weather is this week’s theme, let’s look at the National Weather Service Training Portal site at www.nws.noaa.gov/training/ .  While much of this training material is for NWS employees and other weather professionals, there are a few pages that might be of interest to ARES members.

On the left hand side of this page, near the center, is the heading Partners and Volunteers.  Many ARES members fall under one or more of the categories shown here, such as Educators, Emergency Managers and/or Weather Spotters.  If interested, click on the link or links that might apply to your situation
