NWWS operation: 24 hours / day*
* Twice a month a NWS server-farm transition has a 10-90 minute synchronization outage to allow for security patches, software updates, and planned system maintenance. Time to recover after a server transition can be reduced with proper system set-up, DNS configuration, and access through firewalls. It is recommended users restart their system after each transition to ensure proper NWWS-OI connectivity.
