As part of the National Weather Service’s (NWS) Weather-Ready Nation campaign, the NWS has released a guide to help you access your local hourly weather forecast from your computer or mobile device. Having access to your hourly forecast can assist in saving lives and property by equipping emergency managers, first responders, government officials, businesses and the public with critical information to make fast and smart decisions.
Record-breaking snowfall, cold temperatures, extended drought, high heat, severe flooding, violent tornadoes, and massive hurricanes have all combined to reach the greatest number of multi-billion dollar weather disasters in the nation’s history. The devastating impacts of extreme events can be reduced through improved readiness.
Whether you're at your computer or on your mobile phone, please take time to look at your hour–by–hour weather forecast for the upcoming week.
