LIVE TOR Code Test Coming Next Week

The early arrival of spring-like weather, followed by an arctic chill, is a reminder that Tornado season is almost here.  The 2024 Severe Weather Preparedness Week is March 12- 18, as broadcasters and the National Weather Service work to educate the public about the hazards of severe weather and how to prepare for bad storms.

On Tuesday, March 12 the National Weather Service will trigger a live tornado warning code (TOR) at approximately 10:15 AM as a statewide test of communications systems. Wednesday March 15 will serve as a backup in case of bad weather on the planned testing day.

The required monthly test for March will take place March 21, 2024 at 2:50 PM.  As a reminder, the Emergency Alert System Required Monthly Tests (RMTs) are scheduled for the third Thursday of every month at 2:50PM on odd-numbered months and at 4:50AM on even-numbered months.
