Weather Radio is a service of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA). These broadcasts require special radios for
reception, or can be heard over most scanners and marine radios.
This service provides continuous information on the latest weather
forecasts, warnings and climate data from local NWS offices. During
severe weather, NWS forecasters can interrupt the routine weather
broadcasts and insert special warning messages concerning imminent
threats to life and property.
