Flagstaff Weather Forecast Office
The National Weather Service (NWS) provides weather, hydrologic, and climate forecasts and warnings for the United States, its territories, adjacent waters and ocean areas, for the protection of life and property and the enhancement of the national economy. NWS data and products form a national information database and infrastructure which can be used by other governmental agencies, the private sector, the public, and the global community.
NWS operates 122 Weather Forecast Offices in six regions. Each Weather Forecast Office has a geographic area of responsibility, also known as a County Warning Area, for issuing local public, marine, aviation, fire, and hydrology forecasts. They also issue severe weather warnings, gather weather observations, and climate data for their assigned area.
