Office of the Skywarn Director


Welcome Everyone:

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 radio.

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.
