NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards

Streaming Audio

There are two types of NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards audio available on the Internet:

Do NOT rely on this Internet to receive watches or warnings. You should have a dedicated NOAA Weather Radio receiver to alert you 24 hours a day to hazards in your area, even when the power goes out on your computer, as it often does during weather events.

Live Streaming Audio

NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards broadcasts are available online as live streaming audio. These streams are hosted by third parties such as universities, private companies and individuals, not by NWS. While we broadcast the audio used by these streams, we have no control over interruptions or discontinuation of these streaming audio services. You can find links to the majority of these streams at Weather Underground.

Note that some of these streams have a limit to the number of simultaneous connections they can support. If there is active weather in a particular area, you may not be able to connect to the audio stream from that area.

The streams require an audio player. There are several free players available on the Internet. If your audio player doesn't seem to work with a stream, you may need to use a different player. Some of the links may not work with every Internet browser (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer). If your browser doesn't work, try another.

Audio Files for Download or Online Listening

Weather Radio messages from the following NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards transmitters are available online as downloadable audio files from NWS Weather Forecast Office (WFO) Websites. The same computers which produce the text-to-speech audio files for broadcast over Weather Radio can also produce mp3 files used by many WFOs on phone systems and websites. Most links represent a specific NWR transmitter; however, the Alaska links contains product files from multiple Alaskan transmitters.

The audio files found at these websites will contain routine products including forecasts, current conditions (i.e., observations), and/or climate summaries. Event-driven products such as watches and warnings are not included at the present time. The links labeled also contain RSS feeds and/or podcasts.

The files require an audio player. There are several free players available on the Internet. If your audio player doesn't play the entire file, you may need to first download the file to your computer and then play it, or else use a different player.

Since this service is experimental in nature, the files may not be current. If you have questions or comments on this service, contact the originating WFO via the link on their office website.

  # - This is either a non-operating or proposed transmitter, for which audio files are being generated on a test or preparatory basis.
