The National Weather Service weather radio transmitters broadcast 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The routine broadcast includes the up-to-the-minute weather forecast and hourly weather conditions from selected cities around the region. Special climatological data and weather facts are also broadcast daily. During periods of inclement weather, Watches, Warnings, and Advisories take precedence. This may cause regularly scheduled programming to be suspended until conditions improve. During severe weather, National Weather Service personnel will activate a warning alarm tone which will be intercepted by specially built receivers.

                                             

The Amarillo National Weather Service Office has forecast and warning responsibility for the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles. The Amarillo office operates NOAA Weather Radio transmitters at five locations. These transmitters are located in Amarillo, Borger, Miami, Perryton and Guymon. All except Borger operate at 1000 Watts of power (Borger operates at 100 Watts). The Summerfield and Childress transmitters are supported by the NWS office in Lubbock. Cimarron County is covered by the Des Moines transmitter, supported by NWS Albuquerque, Beaver County receives coverage from the Meade transmitter, supported by NWS Dodge City, and eastern Beaver and Lipscomb Counties receive coverage from the Woodward transmitter, supported by NWS Norman.
