The NOAA Weather Radio transmitter that serves the NYC metropolitan area will be out of service for an extended period of time starting this afternoon. This station is KWO35 broadcasting on a frequency of 162.550 MHz on 750 watts. This outage is required to re-locate the NYC NOAA Weather Radio transmitter. We are in the process of identifying possible new locations for the transmitter. Once a new site is identified, we will begin system testing to assure the transmitter and the associated signal is performing at an optimal level. This process will take several months. During this period, local NWS observations, forecasts, and data for the NYC metropolitan area can be found on: The web at: http://www.weather.gov/okx Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/NWSNewYorkNY Twitter at: https://twitter.com/NWSNewYorkNY If you have any comments or questions, please contact Susan Buchanan, NWS Acting Director of Public Affairs at susan.buchanan@noaa.gov or 301-427-9000.

We will provide updates on the status of the NYC NOAA Weather Radio Transmitter through Public Information Statements when more information becomes available. $$
