Per the Raleigh National Weather Service SKYWARN webpage, “EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: NWS Raleigh has discontinued the issuance of, and use of spotter ID numbers. Spotters who wish to obtain some sort of identification number are encouraged to consider becoming a CoCoRaHS observer to supplement their SKYWARN service.”
When making reports via the Central Carolina SKYWARN Net, CCS Facebook page, telephone call to the NWS or by some other method, please do not use your spotter ID. Please provide your name and location as the method of identification. You may indicate if you are a trained spotter.
