NOAA Weather Wire Service (NWWS) - legacy

Mission:Timely delivery of critical weather informationDescription:NWWS is a satellite data collection and redistribution system operated by the National Weather Service (NWS). NWWS singular purpose is to provide timely meteorological, hydrological, climatological, and geophysical information to state and federal governments, emergency managers, commercial users, media outlets (television, radio, social), and the general public.

  • New things will appear 2014

    • SBN Channel 201 (NWWS only products) is operational for review this October 2014

  • Still in Development for 2015

    • Open Interface (OI) – still in development

    • Nlets Interface – currently under test

Change is coming in 2014-2015

NOAA Weather Wire Service (NWWS) 2014-2015

NWWS will be adding to the dissemination streams starting this Fall.

The NWWS will operate similar to the current contractor leased system, with dissemination of weather data via:

  • C-band satellite(SBN/NOAAPORT Channels 101-105 and Channel 201 for dedicated NWWS only products)

  • an Internet-based method known as the "Open Interface," UNDER DEVELOPMENT

  • the International Justice and Public Safety Network (Nlets), UNDER DEVELOPMENT

    NOTE: The “Nlets” system has a private data stream for law enforcement/emergency management networks not open to the general public.

    Users of NWWS will be given the opportunity to stay with their current configuration (as CSC remains an NWS client/user) or change to the new/proposed system and interfaces.

*Common Alert Protocol (CAP) format is for alert text messages only. CAPv1.2 integration is TBD. Only CAP v1.2 is compatible for Emergency Alert System (EAS) activation.

NWWS products are also available over the SBN/NOAAPORT (Channels 101-105), Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) satellite product stream and via the NWS Family of Services (all NWS and NWWS products). Family of Services is a NWS for-fee dissemination capability.“Push” Connectivity

  • National Weather Service has not determined if there will be a “push” capability in the future.

  • As NWWS proceeds with the transition, your cooperation, collaboration, and input are appreciated. Please feel free to contact NWS for more information about the upcoming change(s) or to provide input on system capabilities and proposed distribution methods and shortfalls of the available options.
