WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — WPTV First Alert Weather is hitting the road.

From Palm Beach County to the Treasure Coast, WPTV is helping you prepare for hurricane season.

The WPTV First Alert Weather meteorologists will be visiting each of the five counties in the viewing area (Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee) to help keep you informed as another hurricane season approaches, as well as welcome more WPTV First Alert Weather Spotters into the fold.

A training session will be hosted in each county. Attendees can expect to see a presentation on various severe weather topics, followed by a Q&A with the meteorologists.

The goal is to teach you about the severe weather that affects your community, how to prepare and answer whatever questions you might have. Attendees will also become an official WPTV Weather Spotter and get some souvenirs to take home.
