Weather plays an important role in camping. This should be one of the first areas to consider when getting ready to go camping. You should be prepared to deal with bad weather when camping. A weather report will help determine if you are going camping, what food you will bring and what clothes you are going to wear. As a camper any bad weather should be a matter of concern, you should know what to do for safety.
As a precaution, monitor local and national weather forecasts. The Weather Channel provide a national and local weather forecast for cities, as well as weather radar, report and hurricane coverage.
Bring a dedicated weather radio to stay updated on weather conditions.
Dedicated radios continually receive weather information from the National Weather Service including watches and warnings.
You can find an weather radio at many name brand stores. They’re inexpensive and relatively light.
You can check with the local office of the National Weather Service for information regarding the coverage areas for Weather Radio broadcasts.
