Use these convenient weather tools to display current weather alerts, including NOAA weather warnings, watches, advisories, and statements.

  • A warning is issued when a hazardous weather or hydrologic event is occurring, is imminent, or has a high probability of occurring.  A warning is used for conditions posing a threat to life or property.
  • An advisory highlights special weather conditions that are less serious than a warning.  Advisories are issued for events that may cause significant inconvenience and, if caution is not exercised, could lead to situations that may threaten life and/or property.
  • A watch is used when the risk of a hazardous weather or hydrologic event has increased significantly, but its occurrence, location, and/or timing is still uncertain.  It is intended to provide enough lead time so that those who need to set their plans in motion can do so.
  • A statement is issued when a weather condition or hydrologic event occurs which is of newsworthy interest to the general public.
