Weather plays a major role on life in the Carolinas. Our weather, like our topography, is quite diverse. The Carolinas experiences a wide range of conditions with influences from the Appalachian Mountains in the west to the Atlantic Ocean in the east.
Through all this diversity, NOAA's National Weather Service is here to provide you with the latest information on the weather. The Carolinas are served by nine National Weather Service offices. They coordinate to provide Carolinians with the most accurate and up to date weather observations and forecasts.
