Who We Are

Our National Weather Service Office is located at 533 Roberts Road, in Newport, North Carolina. Newport is located just west of Morehead City, in Carteret County. Our office serves most of Eastern North Carolina, including the Outer Banks. The National Weather Service is a federal government organization that was developed out of the Weather Bureau that was created in 1870. It eventually became a branch of the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which is a branch of the Department of Commerce. 123 Weather Forecast Offices serve the entire United States including American Samoa and Guam. The other National Weather Service offices that cover Eastern North Carolina include Raleigh, Wilmington, and Wakefield VA. Other NOAA presences in the area include the National Marine Fisheries Service in Beaufort.

What We Do

The National Weather Service's mission is "To Protect Life and Property". We are tasked with providing weather, hydrologic, and climate forecasts and warnings for the United States, its territories, adjacent waters and ocean areas, for the protection of life and property and the enhancement of the national economy.

That is our goal in Eastern North Carolina. By providing forecasts and warnings we keep you and your livelihood safe.
