A message from our President:
Dave Freeman 2016: I am very sure that over the long history of the National Weather Service’s weather warnings program, there were good reasons—apparently at least 122 good reasons—for the way that we try to communicate weather risks to the general public. But as the old saying goes, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” We started down the road with very good intentions, and each paving stone was laid with good intentions. But the road has taken us to a place we did not intend—or want—to go.
Fall Weather Safety
As the days get shorter and temperatures fall, a new round of weather hazards are on the rise. This transitional season often features weather hazards seen during both warm and cold months, including hurricanes, wildfires, intense winds, flooding, droughts, early season snow and more.
Get ready for fall weather with preparedness tips from the National Weather Service. Stay safe this fall! LEARN MORE

Better Science, Better Communication, Better Results
Operational meteorologists constantly strive to improve the science behind the forecast. We also want to make sure the people we serve receive, understand and then act on the information that we provide. If we utilize the best possible science and are effective communicators, lives will be saved and impacts to the economy minimized. Join the National Weather Association in Norfolk and help the weather enterprise advance on this path of service.
