Southwest California SKYWARN is a separate entity from and operates at the request of the National Weather Service, and in no way represents the National Weather Service, its staff, products or services.
Southwest California Skywarn was activated for San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego Counties a number of times in 2014 and previous years for summer monsoon weather activity and winter storms. We were briefly activated for the May 15, 2015 rain event. A number of weather reports were filed via ham radio. In the future, highlights from such reports will appear on this website. San Diego County Skywarn was briefly activated for the first Monsoon event of 2015, on June 30.
Southwest California Skywarn participated in Field Day 2014 using the callsign WX6SGX. We have submitted a Field Day log to the ARRL and are claiming
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 312 points in category 1D.
Steve Smith, WB6TWL has recently handed over the task of updating this website to Jim Campbell, WB6ZPB. Steve has been single-handedly maintaining this website and all it's features since before time began, but has become too busy with real life to continue doing so. So Jim will step in for now, and will attempt to add features from time to time that hopefully are of some value.
SWSkywarn has recently updated some staff positions, like Tom Smerk as our new Public Information Officer and Steve Stipp as Assistant San Diego County Coordinator.
