NWS Boulder/Denver - Did You Know - Around The Clock

  • Did you know we're here 24/7/365? Our team of meteorologists work rotating shifts to constantly analyze the latest data from Doppler radar, satellites, lightning sensors, river gauges, surface and upper air reports.
  • We use this information to produce forecasts, watches, warnings, and provide support to our partners such as your local Emergency Managers around-the-clock!
  • We always have at least two meteorologists working, with extra coverage during the afternoon/evening in the spring and summer when thunderstorms are most likely.
  • Forecasters typically split up the duties of the shift, with one meteorologist responsible for the short term (next 24 hours) and another for the long term (through seven days). #NWSDYK
