They are all usually around the same timeframe, each of the NWS offices will switch the dates around a little. Most of them will be in the March to May timeframe.
 
Hi all

With my flights booked there is a team of four in my group. Myself, Paul Sherman and Peter Holmes from a top UK Weather Forum, Net-Weather and Ian Miller from UK Weatherworld 7 May - 28 May landing DFW 1430. I want to make sure these classes will be open to people from the UK. Probably a daft question but I need to make sure!

Just for the record, here is the METAR from our local Airport today:

EGJJ 081350Z 34009KT 9999 VCFC FEW022 BKN032 07/01 Q1031 NOSIG

The sighting was also confirmed by a friend of mine.
 
Storm spotter training classes

Attended a storm spotter training class on March 14th at the Allison Iowa fire station, it was excellent! Not surprised though, the folks from the NWS in Desmoines etc. always do a good job teaching these classes! :D
Had atleast 2 of my pictures and 3 of my video clips used to teach the class!

Ohio State Skywarn Spotter Class

Although its not listed under the Wilmington, OH NWSFO web page for spotter training, there is a Skywarn Spotter Class that will be conducted on the campus of Ohio State sometime in late April and it will of course be open to the public. The thinking here is that it will be more accessible to the students on campus at that time.
