Midland’s desktop NOAA weather radios can be programmed to receive alerts for a SINGLE county, or for MULTIPLE counties. We generally suggest you set the radio to alert for your SINGLE home county. Remember, the more counties you program into the radio, the more the radio goes off.

Current state-of-the-art weather radios in the US and Canada allow for precise tracking of storm movement and intensity. When a severe thunderstorm shows sign of exiting a nearby county and entering yours, your weather radio will be automatically activated before that storm even reaches your county line. On average, lead time on severe thunderstorm warnings is approximately 22 minutes, and tornado warning lead times are around 13 minutes. With just your SINGLE home county selected you should be able to receive warnings in plenty of time.

NWS Columbia Spotter Program Update

Good Afternoon Spotters,

We wanted to send a quick update on the Spotter Program at our office!

For those of you who have not taken the spotter training in a while and feel you may have forgotten some of the aspects of the training, we have uploaded a video to our YouTube page which serves as a shorter refresher:

We have created a new private Facebook Group (NWS Columbia SKYWARN) for NWS Columbia Spotters to submit reports! In the coming days, we will send out invites to the email list that we have so be on the lookout for it! We hope that this will enable us to quickly receive trustworthy reports from the NWS Columbia Spotter community. 

Thank you for all that you do! If there are any questions, please reach out to me, Chris Landolfi ([email protected])
