NOAA Weather Radio
The Voice of the National Weather Service
NOAA Weather Radio is the National Weather Service's direct link to the public. This Nationwide network of radio stations broadcasts continuous weather information 24-hours a day. The broadcast includes severe weather watches and warnings; as well as routine forecasts, current conditions, and climatology. An additional feature, the Specific Area Message Encoder has been added so that weather radios can be programmed to warn only for specific locations. NOAA Weather Radio is your direct link to the NWS for hazardous weather information.
A new NOAA Weather Transmitter has been installed in Palatka to provide better coverage for Southern St. Johns County. The new frequency is 162.425 mhz. The weather information is from the National Weather Service Office in Jacksonville. NOAA Weather Radio transmits marine forecasts, severe thunderstorms, tornado information and hurricane watches and warnings.
If you are located South of International Golf Parkway, please change the frequency on your NOAA Weather Radio from 162.550 mhz to the new frequency 162.425 mhz to receive a stronger signal. If you are located North of International Golf Parkway, no change is needed.
