Many observers have attended "SKYWARN" classes offered by Michael Redman through St. Louis County for the last 30 years. While now retired from St. Louis County, Michael Redman continues to offer these classes through The Traveling Weather Show. If you have enjoyed and benefited from these classes in the past, you will be pleased to know that you may still take advantage of these excellent training and safety services, which undergo constant review and improvement. If you have never attended Michael Redman's programs, you are welcome to take a class. They are far better than standard presentations from other providers.
