NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards is the voice of the National Weather Service. It provides continuous broadcasts of the
latest weather information and forecasts directly from NWS offices across the country. Recorded messages are repeated
every three to five minutes and are updated when necessary. NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards Stations operate 24 hours a day,
every day of the year. NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards is a computer-based broadcasting system that automatically
transforms written National Weather Service forecasts, advisories, warnings, and other products into synthesized
voice products and automatically schedules them for broadcast.
During FULLY automated operation, the NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards broadcasting
system transforms ALL written text products into the synthesized-voice
and automatically schedules ALL products for broadcast...EVEN the warnings.
Therefore, a warning is on the NOAA Weather Radio broadcast cycle a few seconds after it is
composed and shipped out on our communication links. Sometimes seconds
can save lives in a very severe weather situation. With the time saved
using the automated NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards system, we are able to devote more time to our critical
warning service and the forecasting of weather.
Broadcast Cycles for NWS Pueblo Weather Radio
Before and during severe weather, staff at the Pueblo office will interrupt the routine program with important
weather warnings and statements. Specially equipped weather radio receivers with built-in alarms, will sound the alarm,
indicating that a weather emergency exists. With the Emergency Alert System, NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards can notify local radio
and television broadcasters of severe weather events quickly, and will alarm only for the county affected by dangerous
weather. The next generation of Weather Radio receivers allows you to program to alarm only for the county in which you
are located. The Emergency Alert System will allow broadcasters to more easily simulcast Weather Radio warning
announcements. In fact, broadcasters will be required to carry Weather Radio live broadcasts when their station
is in automated mode.
There are eight NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards Stations with programming that originates from the
Pueblo NWS office:
