Sogn Valley SKYWARN

Sogn Valley SKYWARN, Inc. works in association and is coordinated by the local office of the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minnesota. We are a team of volunteer storm spotters who are trained to support the NWS and our local communities during times of severe weather. Our observations and subsequent reports provide critical data for the early detection of weather events capable of threatening life and/or property.

Our radar will be out of service for approximately one week beginning October 14 for technicians to perform an important upgrade. A return to service is expected on Thursday October 20.
Data from neighboring radars during the outage will be available at:
