A National Weather Service employee told KCNI/KBBN that the advanced training sessions will focus on dual polarization radar, radar interpretation, hail, and an overall better understanding of storm spotting. Other classes will look into the features of thunderstorms and tornadoes, and discuss how spotters can assist the National Weather Service.
