KNWA is pleased to bring state of the art, personal storm warning services to Fayetteville.
Recent improvements in how the National Weather Service (NWS) defines warning areas have resulted in significantly higher accuracy and smaller warned areas
, compared to the decades-old county-wide warning method. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/sbwarnings
system continuously monitors the National Weather Service’s NOAA weatherwire
. Using computerized mapping (GIS) the system compares a subscriber’s specific location
to the location of the warning area.
When a severe weather warning includes your location, you will receive a phone call from Chief Meteorologist Dan Skoff
, 24 hours a day. You can also receive the warning by email with a detailed map of the threat or by SMS text messaging.
