Emergency Managers Weather Information Network
As an integral part of its mission, the NWS recognizes the need to provide the emergency management community with access to a set of NWS warnings, watches, forecasts, and other products at no recurring cost. Toward that end, the Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) system was developed. In partnership with the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) and other public and private organizations, EMWIN has evolved into a fully operational and supported NWS service.
ISSUESIf you are experiencing problems with EMWIN Satellite Service, ByteBlaster or the EMWIN FTP service please contact EMWIN support at NWS.EMWIN.Support@noaa.gov

Topic: NOAA Wallops Command & Data Acquisition Station (WCDAS) Facility Power Outage
Date/Time Issued: March 26, 2018 2115 UTC
Details/Specifics of Change:
The NOAA Wallops Command and Data Acquisition Station (WCDAS) is planning an entire site power outage on Tuesday, April 3, 2018. The outage is required to perform maintenance and repairs on the station's electrical power system. The power outage can be expected to last as long as three days although the goal is to complete the work within two days.
It is likely there will be an outage of the 1692.7 MHz Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) broadcast for the duration that WCDAS is down for both GOES-14 and 15. If there is an outage, users are asked to utilize GOES-15's LRIT broadcast, the NWS FTP or ByteBlaster services for EMWIN continuity of operations. Additionally, there will not be any NOAA-18 and NOAA-19 HRPT data from WCDAS.
It is not anticipated that dissemination of other data to users will be impacted during this power outage. However, if unforeseen data outages occur, users will be notified as information becomes available.
If a 'Critical Weather Day' is declared, the event will be rescheduled for April 10, 2018.
