Skywarn is the National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer severe weather spotters. Skywarn spotters support their local community and government by providing the NWS with real-time severe weather reports. These reports, when received by meteorologists and integrated with modern NWS technology, can then be used to inform citizens of the proper actions to take as severe weather threatens.

CUYAHOGA COUNTY SKYWARN
The county warning area consists of the 30 counties covered by the Cleveland NWS office. During a severe weather event, each county will run a net that gathers reports from spotters in the field. A liaison station checked into this net filters and passes those reports on to WX8CLE at Cleveland Weather. Please do not make reports directly to the backbone unless no local nets are in operation. See the Backbone Training Info page for more information.
