Central Illinois SKYWARN® is proud to partner with the Lincoln Weather Service Office (ILX) in providing Skywarn Operations in the Central Illinois Area. Our trained Skywarn team members provide essential information for all types of weather hazards and our main responsibility is to identify and report severe weather events as well as providing post-storm debris assessment information to aid the National Weather Service is compiling data on the impact of the weather event.
Chicagoland SKYWARN® is a group of amateur radio operators, emergency coordinators, meterologists, and weather spotters in the Chicago metropolitan area. The purpose of the group is to promote severe weather awareness, organize training opportunites, and most importantly to act as a bridge of information from the many Skywarn, ARES, and RACES groups in the area. Our goal is to promote communication and goodwill between existing ham groups in the area, NOT to replace any of them.
Northern Illinois SKYWARN® provides coverage in the Winnebago and Boone Counties.
We welcome all trained spotters to the group. And will assist anyone in SKYWARN® training.
