...THE NOAA WEATHER RADIO NYC TRANSMITTER KWO-35 WILL BE ON THE
AIR TEMPORARILY TO TEST TRANSMISSION...

NOAA Weather Radio station KWO-35, operating on a frequency of
162.550, will be on the air temporarily to test transmission from
a new location. The transmitter will not be operating at full
power for this test so areal coverage of these broadcasts will
be operating in a limited capacity. Once these tests are
concluded and deemed successful, we will continue to work towards
a full operation and permanent installation. Further information
on an estimated time of return to service will be provided once
the tests have been concluded.

In the meantime, local NWS observations, forecasts and data for
the NYC metropolitan area can be found on:
