Residents who want to be storm spotters can attend a training session.

The National Weather Service and the Johnson County Emergency Management Agency, will offer a class on severe storm spotting on March 14.

The class is free and open to the public.

The session will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the sheriff’s training facility, 1061 Hospital Road, Franklin. The facility is behind the county jail building.

National Weather Service meteorologist Dan McCarthy will describe cloud and wind patterns associated with severe weather, how to interpret weather radar data, and how to remain safe during severe weather.
