Whenever severe weather threatens, put your family disaster plan into action and continue watching WWL-TV or log onto wwltv.com for the latest storm updates. Meteorologists Carl Arredondo, Laura Buchtel, Dave Nussbaum, and Alexandra Cranford use state-of-the-art forecasting technology in WWL-TV’s PinPoint Forecast Center to keep you ahead of the storm.
We’ve also multiplied the power behind our live PinPoint Doppler with an exclusive regional Pinpoint Network of live Doppler radars stretching from the Atlantic Coast to the Gulf Coast and beyond. This allows WWL-TV meteorologists to track severe and tropical weather with unparalleled up-to-the-second accuracy 24 hours a day. Our PinPoint StormPath can show you where a storm is headed, up to one hour in advance, right down to your neighborhood or street.
WWL-TV’s exclusive WeatherLink 4 reporting system connects a network of real-time weather stations, located in schools across our viewing area, which transmits live data such as winds and rainfall totals into the PinPoint Forecast Center.
WWL-TV’s PinPoint 3-D shows you storms in three dimensions, giving you a detailed look at each layer of the storm, and can also detect developing tornadoes, hail, and strong winds. PinPoint 3-D’s Tornado Tracker combines data from WWL’s live PinPoint Doppler radar with four regional National Weather Service radars to instantly detect dangerous twisting or rotating winds during tropical activity. It can be up to 5 to 10 minutes faster than standard Doppler radar, and during times of severe weather those minutes can be critical to your safety. PinPoint Doppler is the fastest, most powerful, and most accurate severe weather forecasting tool in southeast Louisiana.
