NOAA National Hurricane Center
This year, the NOAA’s National Hurricane Center will issue tropical storm watches when conditions are possible along the coast within 48 hours. Tropical storm warnings will be issued when those conditions are expected within 36 hours. This is an increase of 12 hours from those issued in previous years.
