The Sherburne County SKYWARN Team is starting out the 2013
storm season under new management. Our group has a very close working relationship with the
National Weather Service Officials in Chanhassen.
Sherburne County SKYWARN volunteers include local businessmen
and women, students, government employees, military personnel, skilled
laborers, retired civilians and even military retirees, all of whom have
a dedication to providing public service.
The Sherburne County Skywarn Service provides
real-time weather spotting within Sherburne County, to the Cities of
Becker, Big Lake, Elk River, Orrock, Princeton, Santiago, St. Cloud,
Zimmerman, and various other Sherburne County communities.
During times of emergency, when the National Weather
Service office in Chanhassen, MN requests, our federally licensed radio operators (ham radio
operators) are able to provide severe weather spotter
reports directly to the National Weather Service via ham
The Sherburne County SKYWARN Team will be operating
primarily on the Elk River repeater (146.970), but may also
operate on the Big Lake repeater (145.490) as a backup.
