Our local National Weather Service office is feeling the effects of the government shutdown.
While many local National Weather Service office employees are at work, they will be working without pay.
These employees are required to work because they are essential employees.
With employees still a work, important weather information will still be provided.
Warnings, watches and advisories will still be issued, but many websites operated or related to the National Weather Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Web pages will be temporarily shutdown.
