SkywarnTM is a National Weather Service (NWS) program of trained volunteer severe weather spotters. SkywarnTM volunteers support their local community and government by providing the NWS with timely and accurate severe weather reports. These reports, when integrated with modern NWS technology, are used to inform communities of the proper actions to take as severe weather threatens. The key focus of the SkywarnTM program is to save lives and property through the use of the observations and reports of trained volunteers.

A Memorandum of Understandingbetween the National Weather Service (NWS) and the American Radio Relay League, Inc. (ARRL) serves as a framework within which volunteers of the ARRL may coordinate their services, facilities, and equipment with NWS in support of nationwide, state, and local early weather warning and emergency communications functions.

Central Carolina SKYWARN™ is the designee of the Raleigh NWS that serves the following 18 counties: Chatham, Durham, Edgecombe, Franklin, Granville, Halifax, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Nash, Orange, Person, Sampson, Vance, Wake, Warren, Wayne, and Wilson. Central Carolina SkywarnTM operates under the specific direction of the National Weather Service.
