**NOTE - NOAA Weather Radio uses a computer-generated voice for most of the programming schedule. An actual human operator, as depicted above, will only be used in rare circumstances, such as live broadcasting of severe weather warnings


Common questions & answers:

Q: What is NOAA Weather Radio?
A: For information on this subject, please visit the NOAA Weather Radio information page; the page you are viewing is designed to help you tune into the Internet broadcasts.

Q: How can I listen in to the products in the NWR broadcast cycle?
A: First of all, you'll need a media player installed on your PC. Most Windows 98 or later computers already have one already installed, so you may not have to download any special software. Second of all, you'll need to be connected to the Internet at 14.4 Kbps or faster; we recommend a 28.8 Kbps connection or better for best results. Click on the MP3 link for the NWR product you wish to listen to, and your default media player will load and play the clip. If you click on a link and nothing happens, or the clip does not play normally, rebooting (restarting) your PC will most likely clear up the problem.

Q: Is this a live broadcast?
A: The audio MP3 files you are listening to on the Internet are a direct representation of what is being transmitted live from the N.O.A.A. transmitter in Phoenix, each product in the NWR broadcast cycle has been encoded as an MP3 file and placed onto the N.O.A.A. Phoenix web server so that you may listen to it. Each time the a product in the broadcast cycle is updated, a new MP3 file is encoded, so that whatever you are listening to is always current.

The following is a excerpt from the NOAA Site about the NOAA Weather Radio Network:

NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from a nearby National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts National Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day.

Working with the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) Emergency Alert System , NWR is an "All Hazards" radio network, making it your single source for comprehensive weather and emergency information. In conjunction with Federal, State, and Local Emergency Managers and other public officials, NWR also broadcasts warning and post-event information for all types of hazards -- including natural (such as earthquakes or avalanches), environmental (such as chemical releases or oil spills), and public safety
(such as AMBER alerts or 911 Telephone outages).

Known as the "Voice of NOAA's National Weather Service," NWR is provided as a public service by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), part of the Department of Commerce. NWR includes more than 940 transmitters , covering all 50 states, adjacent coastal waters, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific Territories. NWR requires a special radio receiver or scanner capable of picking up the signal. Broadcasts are found in the VHF public service band at these seven frequencies (MHz): 162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525, 162.550

 Pepper Ridge North Valley Random Weather Facts

HUMIDEX
Definition Humidex - Over the years, several measures have been proposed to relate various combinations of temperature and humidity into a single number to approximate what hot, humid weather feels like to the average person. Of these, humidex is the one most familiar to Canadians. Humidex was introduced into Canada in 1965. The index is a summer analogue of the wind chill factor in that it is an equivalent air temperature. Air of a given temperature and humidity is equated in comfort to air of a higher temperature that has a negligible moisture content. Comfort is quite subjective and largely dependent on the age and health of the individual. Weather conditions causing prickly heat in an infant may result in heat cramps in a teenager, heat exhaustion in a middle-aged and heat stroke in a senior. Humidex is also limited as an overall hot-weather comfort index because it does not consider other factors such as pressure, wind speed, precipitation, sunshine or pollen.
