Storm Spotter Training

March 23, 2011

Meterologist Jeff Hutton rattles off the parameters of what makes a funnel cloud like he was describing a simple mathematical equation. But, with the many variations of cloud formations, it can seem like understanding a foreign language to the lay person.

That’s exactly why meterologists give presentations in each Kansas County every year. Over 50 people attended the training session put on at the IOOF Lodge on Monday evening. Many of those in attendance are Storm Spotters.

Jeff told the audience that the number of funnel clouds sighted in Kansas has rose the past two years. We hope that Stafford County doesn’t add to that statistic in the upcoming year.
