NMSU?s Dona Ana County Extension Office to host advanced weather spotter class

Keeping a trained eye to the sky can offer advanced warning to the National Weather Service when severe weather begins to emerge.


To help in the effort, New Mexico State University?s Dona Ana County Extension Office will offer an Advanced Weather Spotter Class from 9-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 6, at the Dona Ana County Extension Office, 530 N. Church St., in Las Cruces.

Preferably, participants should have already completed their basic class before taking the advanced class and need to bring their weather spotter number with them to the course.

The event is coordinated by Alberta Morgan, southwest New Mexico volunteer coordinator for the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network, also known as CoCoRaHS. Network volunteers collect weather data across the region and send it to a central location to be recorded. The program started in New Mexico in 2005 with the Cooperative Extension Service?s Master Gardener Program.
