Weather information can be received 24 hours a day from NOAA Weather Radio. In Arkansas, this is a joint effort between the National Weather Service and the state. The latest weather information is broadcast all day and all night, including severe weather details.
Special radio receivers are available at radio shops, electronics stores, department stores and discount stores. Many multiband radios and scanners can also receive the frequencies.
Some radio receivers have a "warning alarm" feature for severe weather watches or warnings that allows the National Weather Service to automatically turn on the radio, day or night. This warning alarm is tested each Wednesday between 11 a.m. and noon. If bad weather is occurring or is forecast, the test is postponed until the next good-weather day.
