New Online Reporting Form

  • There is a new on-line reporting form for sending in winter and severe weather reports. The new address link from our web site has changed, and can be found at https://inws.ncep.noaa.gov/report. Please bookmark this new address. This can also be used from your mobile device. 
  • Caution: Do not use Internet Explorer, except for the new Edge Internet browser with Microsoft. Chrome and Firefox will also work. 
  • The new address can still be found under the drop down menu from current hazards from weather.gov/bou.  
  • We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but this change was out of our local control. If you have any questions or concerns on the new format please call or email at scott.entrekin@noaa.gov
