Behind the Scenes of the National Weather Service

Today it’s a fog advisory – tomorrow it could be a winter storm warning or flood watch. That’s because we’re in the thick of the winter weather season – a time when weather advisories, warnings and watches frequently occur. But, what do they really mean and how do forecasters use them to help keep us safe?

In my More-For-Moms, I headed over to the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly, New Jersey to meet warning coordination specialist Joe Miketta. He and his team of top notch meteorologists are key to our public safety. Enter their facility and you’ll see their watchful eyes focused on radar and satellite screens, data and weather models that help the public and television stations across our region.

So, whether you’re flying or driving or just want to know what to wear tune into Eye Opener for your need to know news and weather each weekday from 6 to 8 a.m.  And, a huge shout out to the all the folks at the National Weather Service!
