Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Taunton MA

...National Weather Service Taunton Offices Relocating to Norton, MA
in March...

The National Weather Service (NWS) Southern New England Weather
Forecast Office (WFO) and the Northeast River Forecast Center
(NERFC) will be moving to a new building on or about March 20, 2018.
The new office is located at 46 Commerce Way in the Norton Commerce
Park in Norton, MA. The radar will remain at the existing location
in Taunton, MA.

NWS forecast products and most services will be uninterrupted, since
during the move, WFO forecasters will be temporarily relocating to
the Gray, Maine WFO and NERFC forecasters will be temporarily
relocating to NWS Eastern Region Headquarters in Bohemia, New York.

Six NOAA Weather Radio transmitters will be temporarily off the air
for up to a couple of days during the move to the new facility.
These include:

Johnston, RI transmitter.......WXJ39.....162.400 MHz
Gloucester, MA transmitter.....WNG574....162.425 MHz
Blue Hill, MA transmitter......KHB35.....162.475 MHz
Somers, CT transmitter.........WXJ41.....162.475 MHz
Hyannis, MA transmitter........KEC73.....162.550 MHz
Paxton, MA transmitter.........WXL93.....162.550 MHz

Because we are moving to a different town, all WFO and NERFC phone
numbers, except for the spotter 800 number, will be changing. When
these become known, we will provide further information.

We will provide an updated informational statement in early March,
as we get closer to the move date.
