     - The National Weather Service in Binghamton will conduct a basic SKYWARN (weather spotters) training class May 19 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Wayne County Emergency Management Agency, 43 Volunteer Drive.
    The class is for beginners or anybody with an interest in weather.
    Volunteers will be trained on how to report severe weather to the National Weather Service. The class is free and open to everyone; no age requirements, previous training, or equipment is required.
    Trained weather spotters provide valuable lifesaving information to the National Weather Service and we encourage those who have an interest in weather to participate in this critical program," said David Nicosia, warning coordination meteorologist. “Despite all the technological advances, SKYWARN spotter reports are still crucial to the National Weather Service in providing more accurate severe weather warnings."
