Each year the National Weather Service conducts severe storm spotter training courses for those that want to learn how to spot or those that want to refresh their spotting technique.

The annual meeting will be held this Saturday, February 8, 2014 at the Midwestern State University Clark Student Center.  The meeting will come to order at 9am and usually lasts about two hours.

In addition to cloud spotting, tornado spotting and other severe storm techniques often the meeting includes a recap of the past years season.

This year's speaker will be Rick Smith the Warning Coordination Meteorologist (WCM) of the National Weather Service (NWS) Office in Norman, Oklahoma.  The Norman office has jurisdiction over Western North Texas.
