Responsibilities

The Charleston, South Carolina forecast office of the National Weather Service is a 24x7x365 operation that has weather forecast and severe weather warning responsibility for 8 counties in southeast South Carolina, 12 counties in northern portions of southeast Georgia and a portion of the Atlantic Ocean waters from the Santee River in South Carolina to the Altamaha River in Georgia. We routinely issue a variety of observational/forecast products, including specialized products for the aviation, marine, fire, hydrology and climate communities.  We also issue watches, warnings and advisories as needed for hazardous weather. In addition, we are one of many forecast offices that routinely release weather balloons twice per day to collect upper-air observations for our weather computer models. Lastly, we work closely with federal, state and local government officials to educate them on weather hazards/risks and assist with their critical public safety decisions.
