SKYWARN™ Recognition Day
Please participate in this year's Skywarn Recognition Day (SRD) by sending in your simulated Severe Weather Report (Hawaii only.).
During our time on the air, we will take messages as noted below. There will be no net initiated, just the Skywarn station standing by for the simulated Severe Weather Reports. We will make periodic announcements.
For Hawaii, we ask that you develop a simulated Severe Weather Report based on conditions where you are.
If you go beyond Hawaii, other National Weather Service (NWS) offices will be taking Real-World Fair Weather Reports and not the simulated Severe Weather Reports.
Please Note: If you have a real-world Severe Weather Report, we will take it. Please be sure to identify it as REAL-WORLD.
