Pb2Au;3515990It requires training to be adequately capable of reporting how many inches of snow fell on the ground? All I need is a ruler.[/quote]

We weren't trained in measuring snowfall. We were trained in severe weather recognition.

Anybody could have got a ruler and told the NWS how much snow fell.

But you certainly did post in it. :p

And anybody could use his eyes and tell NWS that a Hurricane that is ripping off rooftops is 'severe weather'. :p

But, when you look up at a thunderstorm and see something that looks like a funnel, can you tell if it is a real funnel cloud or just a scud cloud that is protruding from the thunderstorm. Thunderstorms have cloud protrusions all under their bases. If you need proof, I have plenty of pictures of thunderstorm bases.

We're taught to look for wall clouds (because they're not always easy to find, and they can be confused with a similar-looking cloud called the shelf cloud), if they are rotation (easy), hail size estimates (easy, though I like to use actual change for comparison, and I've only had to do that once), rotating dust and debris on the ground (because not all tornadoes have funnels, and, even if they do, they may not be touching the ground. Probably, non-descending tornadoes (form from the ground up) are commonly funneless (I get this from logic), what actually constitutes a severe thunderstorm (so we don't misreport one), and more.

Yes, we report the easy stuff like storm damage, but we also have to be able to identify things that may confuse the untrained eye and be able to make a decision whether to call it in or not because, sometimes, spotters can see things that radar cannot pick up. A spotter's call is enough to warrant a severe weather warning (per local NWS office decision).
