Weather Alert Day

Weather Alert Day FAQ

What is a Weather Alert Day?

As part of our promise to bring you accurate and dependable forecasts that you can use to plan your day, 10/11 has instituted Weather Alert Days.

Storms can pop up about any time. But there are times when we know in advance that dangerous weather is coming. When that happens, we'll trigger a Weather Alert Day.

This means a majority of our viewers may be affected by dangerous weather conditions that day.

When will you trigger a Weather Alert Day?

A Weather Alert Day is issued when the forecast is potentially dangerous enough to cause us to escalate our coverage. This may include tornadoes, dangerous and destructive thunderstorms, extreme heat index and dangerous wind chills.

This is an early-alert commitment to keep you ahead of the severe weather.

This will give you time to take necessary precautions to keep you and your family safe once the storms hit.

How will I know when it is a Weather Alert Day?

When a Weather Alert Day is announced, we will alert our viewers quickly and accurately by using all of our assets, and giving you the choice of how you want to be alerted to the threat of potentially dangerous weather conditions.

We will alert viewers on 10/11 and users at with a graphic icon and information on where to go for more details. We will also send out a text alert, a Tweet, update our Facebook status and send out an email to our First E-News Nebraska subscribers.

When you see the Alert on-air, on-line or on your phone, you'll know potentially dangerous weather is going to affect you in some way.
