[NWS LOGO] Spotter Study Materials

NOTE: While we list both spotting and chasing references, here, it does not mean that we support or encourage storm chasing. The reason for the inclusion of storm chasing materials on this page is because a lot of the storm chasing materials often overlap in subject and they can still contain helpful added learning material that a spotter can find just as useful in his or her personal storm spotting educational pursuits.
