The National Weather Service weather radio transmitters broadcast 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The routine broadcast includes the up-to-the-minute weather forecast and hourly weather conditions from selected cities around the region. Special climatological data and weather facts are also broadcast daily. During periods of inclement weather, Watches, Warnings, and Advisories take precedence. This may cause regularly scheduled programming to be suspended until conditions improve. During severe weather, National Weather Service personnel will activate a warning alarm tone which will be intercepted by specially built receivers.
