NEWS102.3 KRMG is committed to providing you the best severe weather coverage on radio. And, for years, Oklahomans have come to depend on KRMG for the most accurate and dependable weather forecasting and life-saving severe weather coverage.

You should always have a battery-powered radio nearby in advance of and during severe weather, programmed to FM 102.3 and AM 740 KRMG. You'll get life-saving information from our StormCenter team, with the combined resources of FOX23 Chief Meteorologist James Aydelott and the entire FOX23 weather team, as well as The National Weather Service.

How can I get Severe Weather Alerts?

We provide KRMG StormCenter alerts by text message free of charge. Text "WEATHER" to 95920 from your phone and you'll automatically be signed up.

And, when you become a friend of KRMG on Facebook, you'll see frequent status updates with radar images on our severe weather threat.

What is StormCenter?

StormCenter is defined as the activation of severe weather coverage on KRMG.

KRMG Activates Storm Center Under These Conditions:

During non-winter events, StormCenter activation begins when the National Weather Service issues a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for one or more of the following counties: Creek, Mayes, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington.

During winter weather events, StormCenter activation begins once the National Weather service issues the warning, even though it may not go into effect for 12-18 hours later. Our goal is to help you prepare for the impending weather by providing you with updated weather including snowfall accumulation expectation, city and state emergency management preparedness, road conditions, etc.

What Should I Expect During StormCenter Activation?

Upon issuance of the warning by the National Weather Service, NEWS102.3 KRMG immediately breaks into our talk programming to provide you with the information contained in the bulletin.

You'll hear KRMG StormCenter reports every 15 minutes (airing at :00, :15, :30 and :45) sooner if conditions warrant. With Oklahoma's volatile weather, NewsTalk KRMG often interrupts regularly scheduled programming to provide continuous KRMG StormCenter team coverage.

You'll also hear a KRMG StormCenter alert tone that plays every 90 seconds. Similar to the 'crawl' of the weather information you see at the bottom of your TV screen during severe weather, this tone heard on KRMG alerts you that severe weather is in the area or are on the way, and that you'll get another update on the situation within 15 minutes.

How Long Do StormCenter Activations Last?

It depends on the severity of the storm.

During non-winter events, KRMG StormCenter coverage remains activated until all the warnings for our Storm Center counties (Creek, Mayes, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington) expire.

We will continue to provide StormCenter coverage until all warning expire in our StormCenter counties and the effects of the storm on our community (power outages, driving conditions, school closings, etc.) have been minimized.

  • We told you recently about Amazon possibly receiving incentives for coming to our state. Now comes word, the company will be opening up its first fulfillment center in Oklahoma City by the end of 2019. KRMG has learned the 600,000-square-foot facility will create more than 1,500 full-time jobs. Statement from Amazon: “We’re excited to open our first fulfillment center in Oklahoma and in a city with an outstanding workforce and a commitment to providing great opportunities for employment,” said Mark Stewart, Amazon’s Vice President of North America Customer Fulfillment. “Amazon is committed to creating a positive economic impact in Oklahoma City and enhancing the customer experience throughout the region.” No word on if Tulsa still has a shot at getting a facility as well.  
  • Make sure to have sunscreen handy today if you’re going to be outdoors. The Tulsa area will see plenty of sun and it’s going to be hot.  In fact, National Weather Service Meteorologist Brad McGavick says we have a good shot at breaking the high record for this time of year.   “The record is 94 and right now we’re predicting a high of 94,” McGavick said.  “It’s going to be close.”   We’ll have additional chances to break the record on Monday and Tuesday.  The projected highs both days will be around 94 degrees. Temperatures will be mild Sunday night.   NWS is reporting a low close to 69 degrees.
  • While the Trump Administration has hailed economic and job gains over the past year and a half, the price of gasoline has jumped sharply in recent months for consumers and businesses, adding to the cost of everything from a daily commute, to a summer vacation, and the amount of money companies pay to ship their products around the country. And it’s starting to used by Democrats on Capitol Hill to take aim at the White House. “Gas prices have risen more than 25% since Trump took office,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR). “Overall world crude oil prices have increased over 75 percent in the past year,” said Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), as Democrats wrote President Donald Trump a letter earlier this week, asking him to do something about the rising cost of gasoline . Americans are paying the price at the pump for Trump’s chaotic approach to foreign policy. He hasn’t pressured Gulf leaders to lift their cap on oil output, or pursued diplomatic solutions in Yemen and Syria. The result? $3.89 a gallon #GasPrices pic.twitter.com/CTaW97cez9 — Senator Bob Menendez (@SenatorMenendez) May 23, 2018 Those numbers at the pump aren’t unusual for the Washington, D.C. area as just the ohter day, this reporter filled up on the way to work, and ha the pump shut off before the tank was full, when the total hit the $50 credit card limit at that station for a single transaction. Figures released in recent weeks by the Trump Administration clearly show the increase, with gas prices up on average by over 52 cents a gallon from the same time a year ago, at an average of $2.92 per gallon. The $2.92 per gallon is the highest average price at the pump on Memorial Day in four years – in 2014, gas was at an average of $3.67 per gallon, as Republicans blamed the energy policies of the Obama Administration, arguing for more oil exploration in the United States. Gas prices generally trended down the last few years, leading President Trump to proclaim where they stood on July Fourth of last year. Gas prices are the lowest in the U.S. in over ten years! I would like to see them go even lower. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 4, 2017 But since that tweet on July Fourth of last year, the price of gasoline has only gone up, and federal energy experts expect even more in the months ahead. “Relatively higher crude oil spot prices, higher gasoline demand, and falling gasoline inventories are all factors contributing to higher gasoline prices,” the Energy Information Administration reported last week. The EIA predicted an average of $2.90 per gallon for gasoline this summer.
  • Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen and water handy this weekend. National Weather Service Meteorologist Brad McGavick says we'll see higher than average temperatures over the holiday weekend. “High temperatures will be running about 10 degrees above normal,” McGavick said.   The normal high for this time of year is around 83 degrees.  NWS is reporting highs around 93 or 94 degrees over the next three days.   We also have a chance of breaking the 94 degree high record here in Tulsa.   The lows all three nights will be close to 70 degrees.
