Since the program started in the 1970s, the information provided by SKYWARN® spotters, coupled with Doppler radar technology, improved satellite and other data, has enabled NWS to issue more timely and accurate warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods.

Volunteers include police and fire personnel, dispatchers, EMS workers, public utility workers and other concerned private citizens.
