Who do we serve ?
Everyone in the United States is our customer:
Here are some examples of how we serve our customers:
- business and industry including private meteorologists
- media (TV stations, radio stations, newspapers, internet media, etc.)
- user groups such as the aviation, agricultural, transportation, marine, and recreational communities
- local, state, and federal government
Citizens and other user groups who need weather information:
Through NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio, satellite transmissions, the internet, and the
broadcast media, we provide weather, hydrologic, and climate forecasts and warnings. The
information is used in a wide variety of ways based on our user's needs.
Our office issues five airport terminal forecasts (Terminal Aerodrome Forecast – TAF's) at
least four times daily. The airports are located in Fayetteville, Greensboro, Raleigh-Durham,
Rocky Mount and Winston-Salem.
Academia, Business and Industry:
We collect a wide variety of meteorological and hydrologic data including temperatures,
precipitation, sky cover, radar data, weather balloon data, and much more and send it to
the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) for archiving. Anyone who needs weather data can
request this information directly from NCDC to use in a variety of ways including atmospheric
research, climate and risk calculations, disaster mitigation, and planning. We also collaborate
with several universities and institutions in a variety of research studies.
Local, State, and Federal Agencies:
We not only provide routine weather, hydrologic, and climate forecasts and warnings for
these agencies, but during significant storms or critical weather, we coordinate and provide
detailed briefings, forecasts and warnings.
