Where is my local #Skywarn Net? #ARRL #hamradio @ounwcm @spiltz @NWS

The writer asked "do you know what frequency the skywarn net is here in Houston. There are some tornado warnings".

How would you answer?

RepeaterBook lists Skywarn repeaters.  It is a popular list.

Always check with your local Weather Service Office.  For help finding your local office, go to Weather dot GOV and enter your zip code.  That will get your local forecast.  Nets are listed in the Skywarn section of the page.

There are also nets on 40 and 20 meters.

The Friday schedule is below and with the start times in UTC, winter standard time / summer daylight savings time: 

16:00 / 15:00 7.220 LSB +/-5 Voice 
16:15 / 15:15 14.253 USB +/-5 Voice 
16:30 / 15:30 7.074 LSB Digital (PSK31) around +1500 
16:40 / 15:40 14.070 USB Digital (PSK31) around +1500 depending on traffic

What is YOUR local Skywarn net frequency?
