KWO37 (sometimes referred to as Los Angeles All Hazards) is a NOAA Weather Radio station that is programmed from the National Weather Service forecast office in Los Angeles/Oxnard, California with its transmitter located in Mount Lukens in the San Gabriel Mountains. Although it serves much of the Greater Los Angeles Area and the Pacific Coast Line, it broadcasts weather and hazard information only for Los Angeles and Ventura Counties as well as the coastal waters of Ventura, Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

Its primary forecast point covers the Los Angeles County Coast, the Los Angeles County Valleys including the Santa Clarita Valley, Los Angeles County Mountains excluding the Santa Monica Range, and the Antelope Valley.

Hourly conditions on this station are reported for the following cities: Downtown Los Angeles, Los Angeles Airport, Torrance, Long Beach Airport, Santa Ana, Burbank, Van Nuys, Ontario, Woodland Hills, Sandburg, Mount Wilson, Lancaster, Palm Springs, and Santa Barbara. These conditions are not broadcast during hazardous weather events.


The station originally transmitted from Mount Wilson at a peak power of 500 watts, but was moved to Mount Lukens in 2003 at a peak power of 330 watts. The station at one time covered weather information for all of Southern California until the modernization of the National Weather Service in the 1990s.
