Watching the Potential East Coast Storm Late This Week

The NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) system is a direct broadcast by the National Weather Service on the VHF-FM band.

The broadcast is a continuous cycle of individual products providing a tailored weather information package for residents within the weather radio broadcast area. The product format varies with the time of day and with the season. A warning alarm is transmitted whenever severe weather, national emergency, or other hazardous event requires rapid public warnings. Regular programming is interupted to broadcast these warnings. This warning alarm can be heard on weather radios equipped with the "alarm" feature.

NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts can usually be heard as far as 50 miles from the antenna site, sometimes more. The effective range depends on many factors, particularly the height of the broadcasting antenna, terrain, quality of the receiver, and type of receiving antenna.
