Default CanWarn training dates listed


updated March 26 2014
Letter From Jeff Coulson

Folks, after a very long and very cold winter there is some promise of more seasonal temperatures in the coming weeks. While there is still lots of snow on the ground in some areas and lots of ice on the Great Lakes, strong storm systems capable of producing damaging thunderstorms may not be that far into the future especially in Southwestern Ontario. Please find following the current lists of dates and venues for this spring’s CANWARN storm spotter training sessions. Additional dates/venues will likely be added in the coming weeks and I will be announcing the dates for the training in Northwestern Ontario shortly. The Northwestern Ontario training is currently planned for the week of June 9th.
My thanks again to all of you who are currently part of this important program. I look forward to encountering many familiar faces during the upcoming training sessions and also meeting some new ones. CANWARN continues to be an important part of Environment Canada’s severe weather watch and warning program. Your timely reports provide that all important ground-truthing of what our radar and lightning detection systems may be showing.
To get an idea of numbers at each venue, I would ask that you RSVP me at [email address] with the session you plan on attending. For the Sarnia training session, please RSVP Bill Hoad at [email address]
