NOAA Weather Radio stations broadcast the latest
weather information and are one of the primary means for receiving severe weather
information and general forecast information. Weather radios can be purchased from local
electric supply dealers, and some scanners are equipped to pick up the weather radio
We activate the tone alert for the following
watches or warnings:
If the following weather situations evolve quickly, the following warnings or statements may also be "toned".
Newer weather radios that are equipped with SAME (Specific Area Message Encoder) are available. This allows you to program your radio to receive the tone warning alert only for the counties you program! In addition, you can hear the latest forecasts and other weather information.
Generally, our NWR program consists of a local forecast, local hourly weather and the regional weather summary.
During certain times of the day, we record climate and river information. We record these programs for three transmitters.
