Program Your Weather Radio for Your County

You can customize your weather radio to receive alerts specific to your county.

The code for Houston County is: 013153.

WMAZ has teamed up with Kroger to make NOAA weather radios available for $29.99. 

You can purchase a NOAA weather radio in customer service. These radios give you the ability to pick up severe weather watches and warnings for your counties or numerous counties in the area. Each county has a SAME code, which needs to be programmed into your radio. 

 

The Ring Around the Sun: Explained.

The Ring Around the Sun: Explained.

Many of you may see a prominent ring or "halo" around the sun today.

According to astronomers, these halos are caused by ice crystals in the cirrus clouds high up in the atmosphere.

Do be careful if you are trying to view this phenomenon in the sky because even the shortest exposure to sunlight directly into your eyes could cause permanent eye damage.
