We activate directed nets any time a severe thunderstorm or tornado warning is issued.
Skywarn is the National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer severe weather spotters. Skywarn spotters support their local community and government by providing the NWS with real-time severe weather reports. These reports, when received by meteorologists and integrated with modern NWS technology, can then be used to inform citizens of the proper actions to take as severe weather threatens.
Cuyahoga County Skywarn conducts weekly nets every Wednesday at 8:30 PM from March through September.
