National Weather Service In Fort Worth: Sounding The Alarm For North Texas by SHELLEY KOFLER and KERA News for North Texas
The story link above describes where members of our #SKYWARN radio desk team can be found during weather events in# North Texas. As events intensify and expand across north Texas, we may have up to four to six radio operators monitoring radio repeaters and IRLP or EchoLink linked radio systems for SKYWARN "ground truth" weather reports. We then relay the severe or significant information to NWS warning forecasters directly in front of us across the desk wall. Well trained public SKYWARN volunteers who observe, identify and report severe weather details are the source of our information, and vital to this warning process.
