The Dallas County RACES Council announces the release of the 2016 Cloud Cowboy Reference Manual. This is the 26th year in production for the primary reference manual used by storm spotters in Dallas County. The significant change this year is the complete deprecation of the use of Mapsco for location reporting. Mapsco should no longer be used for any reporting purposes and all reports should be via US National Grid and/or major thoroughfare intersections that are readily identifiable to residents of Dallas County without referring to a mapping resource.
As always, a hearty thanks to the SKYWARN storm spotters for your continued efforts in training and service to our communities!
