WPXI-TV Closings & Delay System

WPXI-TV Closings & Delay System

On behalf of Severe Weather Team 11, we would like to welcome you to our Closings & Delay system. We look forward to working with your organization to provide people with the most immediate, accurate information about your organization’s status during inclement weather.

As you know, we use an automated system in order to give you direct access to the system without the need to work through operators on our end. This speeds up the process of getting the information out to the public and puts you in charge.
