Weather Alerts will provide you with local and real-time weather updates when it most counts.
These local weather alerts are based off of counties that include your set locations. The #1 goal of the local weather alert system is to give you a general overview of weather events that will impact operations. These alerts are given a threat level probability from 20-80%:
20%: Watching a possible system 6+ days out
40%: Watching a possible system
60%: The weather event is likely to occur
80%: The weather event will occur
Before an event, you will receive real-time updates on changes to the forecast including start and end timing on precipitation, precipitation amounts and more. Pop-up severe thunderstorms and snow squalls are also examples of when this type of alert is used.
Weather alerts are delivered through email and or text message, each time an alert is issued or updated.
