The NOAA Weather Radio in Beatrice was struck by lightning and is not operating. Due to the lightning strike, this could be a prolonged outage, up to 30 days or more. There are other weather radio transmitters in the area that may provide reception at your location, so the first step is to check if another transmitter will provide a clear broadcast. Whether you do or do not have a clear broadcast, it is ALWAYS a good idea to have multiple ways to receive important warning information. Hancock NOAA All-Hazards Radio KZZ-52 is out of service. Many phones have Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). Some counties or municipalities offer severe weather text/call services that you can sign up for. There are also many apps available, and while we can't recommend a specific App, we do strongly encourage researching the most reliable options and always keeping an eye on National Weather Service forecasts and social media information. We will work as quickly as possible to restore this outage.
Light winds and partly cloudy skies will allow temperatures to fall to just under or just above the freezing mark on Thursday night into Friday morning. As a result, some frost appears likely which could damage susceptible vegetation.
