Weather Alerts - Via Email
GPS-specific Rainfall Alerts are sent to selected email recipients showing total rainfall for 2-days prior and 1-day prior to the email date.
If no rain falls during the last 2 days, then zip code-based Forecast Alerts are sent indicating that according to NOAA, the POP is â¥ 50% within the next 48 hours.
All alerts include the Precipitation Forecast Estimate (PFE) which indicates the forecast amount of participation for 6-hour periods during the next few days. This information helps managers and practitioners make informed decisions.
If no rainfalls during the last 2 days and the POP is < 50% within the next 48 hours, then no alert.
