The National Weather Service in Boulder has tools to see storms including Doppler radar, satellite images, and rain gauges. Spotters report hail size, rainfall rates, the extent of flooding, funnel clouds and tornadoes, snowfall, peak wind gusts and wind damage, etc. Spotters provide ground truth and help the NWS put out accurate warnings and forecasts. A trained spotter can help their business or community by providing the early notification of a dangerous weather situation. Spotter training keeps the spotter and family safer when severe weather threatens.
