North Carolina's NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) Network

Introduction to NOAA Weather Radio

    NOAA Weather Radio provides a continuous broadcast of the latest weather information for your local area from the National Weather Service. NOAA Weather Radio is an "all hazards" radio network, working in conjunction with the Federal Communication Commission's Emergency Alert System. In addition to weather related watches and warnings, the Weather Radio system can provide information on all types of hazards, including Civil and National Emergency Messages.

    Residents of North Carolina are served by over 27 NOAA Weather Radio transmitters which are located within North Carolina as well as in 3 neighboring states.
