TEXOMA -- With spring around the corner, comes a higher chance of severe weather.

The National Weather Service puts on classes across Texoma each spring  to help people learn how to accurately give a storm report.  

You learn how to correctly identify and report storm clouds that may produce severe weather in your backyard. This includes large hail, damaging winds, and a wall cloud which is the precursor to tornadoes developing.

The classes are important because yes, radar is great, but it does not give the complete picture. Meteorologists need actual eyes on the storm for a better understanding of what is happening on the ground.  

Grayson county held their class Thursday, Feb. 13th but there are still a number of classes available in Oklahoma.

These include classes in:

Atoka - Monday, Feb. 24th, 2014 at 6:30pm; Kiamichi Technology Center

Ardmore - Saturday, March 1st, 2014 at 10:00am; Ardmore Convention Center

Ada - Tuesday, March 4th, 2014 at 6:30pm; Pontotoc Technology Center

McAlester - Thursday, March 13th at 7pm; Eastern State University

And if you can't attend any of those there is even an on-line class available as well Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 at 6:30pm. For information on that class you can email
