As a National Weather Service SKYWARN storm spotter, I like to keep a close eye on the weather, especially when severe weather is in the forecast. Each morning, this page is my first look at the weather. The purpose of this page is to answer these questions:

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," I then turn to the Graphical Weather Forecast web page and the Daily Weather Charts web page. These pages allow me to become aware of potentially strong or severe storms that will be moving into this area in the next few days, and to immediately begin preparing for the effects of these storms, so that on the day of the storm I can devote primary attention to the job of providing "ground truth" to the NWS.
