|| This is an exterior view of the National Weather Service
office in Tallahassee, located on the fourth floor of the new addition
to the James J. Love Building on the campus of Florida State University.
The office relocated to this new facility the week of February 25,
2002, and commenced operations on March 1, 2002. Previously, the office
was located at the main terminal building of the Tallahassee Regional
Airport, which had housed the office since December 1996. In fact,
there had been a NWS presence at the airport since 1961. It is from
this new building that official National Weather Service forecasts
and warnings are issued. Nationally, there are 121 other forecast
offices like this one, as well as 13 river forecast centers. However,
our office was custom-designed and is unique in the NWS. The office
is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Over two dozen people work
inside, keeping a watchful eye to the sky for both good and bad weather.
This office serves southeastern Alabama, southwestern and south central
Georgia, eastern portions of the Florida Panhandle, and the Florida
Big Bend. A map of our service area is available here.
