Meanwhile, FEMA and the FCC will be performing a test of the Wireless Emergency Alerts system at 1:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Test messages will be sent to TVs and radios, along with select cell phones that have opted-in to receive test messages.

Because of this test, the National Weather Service has postponed its weekly weather radio test to tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 p.m., to avoid any confusion with this afternoon's Wireless Emergency Alerts test.
