What is NOAAPort?

NOAAPort is the Satellite Broadcast Network (SBN) that the US Federal Government uses to distribute environmental and hazards-related data.

NOAAPort hosts the most extensive noncommercial collection of environmental and hazards-related data available. From observations, warnings, and forecasts . . . to NEXRAD, RedBook, satellite, and model data - NOAAPort is the data backbone for your local National Weather Service Forecast Office.

Additional information on NOAAPort is available from the official NOAAPort website.
