Welcome to the new Nassau Skywarn Website 

!!Please Note We are Currently Under Construction !!

Thank you for your interest in the NWS Skywarn program and congratulations on completing your Basic Spotter Training Class. We welcome and encourage you to become involved with our program here in Nassau County. Your participation is greatly appreciated and valued by the NWS staff at Upton, as well as by the residents of Nassau County and the surrounding area.

          It is your eyes that can provide the NWS with the information they need to increase lead times on severe weather warnings. Make an effort to be aware of the weather that is expected as well as keeping an eye out for the weather that is not expected.

Skywarn is more than reporting on thunderstorms and hurricanes. Here in Nassau County, many other weather events such as blizzards and Nor’easters impact us and your reports are needed by the NWS. In Nassau, we offer snowfall measurement and cold weather report training in addition to the traditional warm weather training. Your year-round assistance is needed.

           Our local program in Nassau County offers you additional training, opportunities to participation in our group activities, as well as to receive news and alerts. Our website at www.nassauskywarn.net can provide you with more information.

        Although Amateur Radio (ham radio) plays a role in Skywarn, the majority of Spotters are not “hams”. If you are not a “ham” but might be interested in learning how easy and inexpensive it is to become one– just let us know and we can help you get started. It does add another dimension to your spotting efforts and helps to coordinate reporting activities. Anytime you have any questions or concerns– by all means feel free to drop me or my Deputy Coordinator, Michael DeMita, KA2DUT   an email at [email protected] We are here to help you.

With warmest regards,

Matthew Berman

County Coordinator
