Equipped with the most accurate and most powerful technology to keep Tri-State viewers ahead of the storm, NBC 4 New York / WNBC and Telemundo 47 / WNJU announced the arrival of StormTracker 4 or Tele Doppler 47 in Spanish, the only commercial high-frequency S-Band dual polarization fixed Doppler weather radar operating in the Northeast.

The launch of StormTracker 4 further strengthens the deepest, most advanced and most comprehensive lineup of weather technology available to any station within the Tri-State region. This includes StormRanger 4 a new and first-of-its-kind mobile Doppler weather radar truck and StormChaser 4, a military spec sports utility vehicle which can travel directly into the storm. Together with StormTracker 4, NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 viewers will now have access to the real-time weather information they need to keep their families safe and informed when severe weather is on the horizon.

“To get ahead of the storm, we need the most powerful weather technology available and Tele Doppler 47, con tecnología S band will now provide our Spanish-speaking viewers with the real-time, detailed weather information they need to help keep their families safe,” said Cristina Schwarz, president and general manager of Telemundo 47.

NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 are the first Northeast television stations licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to operate in the high-frequency S-Band. Only one license is issued by the FCC per media market, making this technology exclusive to both stations. As a result, NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 viewers can access the most accurate and powerful broadcast weather technology anywhere in the Tri-State area, first.
