NATIONAL WEATHER OBSERVERS DAY
National Weather Observers Day is an annual designation on May 4th. This special day is for the people who enjoy watching and observing the weather.
Weather observers often assist the National Weather Service as Storm Spotters. These hobbyists are valuable resources for communities. This day is also an opportunity to get out and learn about a variety of weather phenomenon, the history of weather tracking and find about meteorological instruments.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Sign up for a weather spotters course. Learn how to identify different types of clouds, shifting weather and prepare for types of weather in your climate. Use #WeatherObserversDay to post on social media.
