NWS to dump ALL CAPS

Recommended Posts

It takes a very long long long time for the higher ups to make changes. BTW the NOAA Weather Radio broadcast computers are from the mid 90's, these are "scheduled" to be replaced this summer. Since we're tax payer funded $ for things are few and far between. Thus no office tours due to understaffing etc. now.

I have a friend who, even if I forwarded him a Tornado Warning, would probably still take the time to complain about how the all-caps text made him stop reading after the first couple of sentences.

Oh, so is that the why the NOAA Wx Radio voice in changing, new computers. I remember the NOAA Wx radio upgrade in the mid 90s, that old voice was a hoot.
