Severe weather awareness training classes beginning this week

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(WNAX)- Instructors for severe weather awareness training classes will be back in the field this spring.

Peter Rogers, with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, says they are looking forward to getting back out there.

Rogers says the sessions are for storm spotters and anyone interested in weather.

Rogers says despite all the technology they have, someone on the ground, looking at a storm is critical to severe weather reporting.

The first class this year is Thursday in Marshall Minnesota.

Classes will be in Sheldon and Ida Grove Iowa and Yankton next week. Classes run through April 28th.
