BILLINGS – KTVQ and the Q2 weather team is holding another storm spotter training session Tuesday, April 24 at the Billings Public Library.

The session will begin will begin at 6:30 p.m. and last until 8:30p.m. The doors will open at 6 p.m.

The goal of the storm spotter training session will be to have people identify and photograph severe and dangerous storms in Montana and Wyoming and to do this safely.

Several speakers will be there to make presentations, including representatives from the Billings National Weather Service.

We will learn how severe thunderstorms are formed, and what is the most common kind of storm in Montana and Wyoming. 

We will also discover how to best photograph the storms safely and what to do with photos and videos so they can be put on the air.

Just like in the past, we will be giving away prizes, like this spectacular Q2 coffee mug that says I survived this winter of ‘18 the snowiest winter on record”
