NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MARINE PRODUCTS VIA MASS MEDIA
National Weather Service marine forecast and warning products are available though a number of different mass media outlets including
TV, social media, smart devices and radio. Many TV, radio and satellite stations receive and disseminate severe weather warning
information when the NWS activates the Emergency Alert System (EAS).
Many mobile carriers send NWS alerts of severe weather through
Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) messages.
NWS uses social media tools to educate the public and share critical weather
In the state of Alaska, the National Weather Service partners with Alaska Public Media, KUAC-TV,
360 North and the Alaska Public Broadcasting’s Alaska Rural Communications Service (ARCS) to produce the state-wide public
television show "Alaska Weather," and an associated radio broadcast. Click HERE for
information on the shows as well as images of weather maps produced for the TV show.
Mass media outlets most often obtain up-to-the-minute NWS forecasts using the
NOAA Weather Wire Service (NWWS).
