WNG736 (sometimes referred to as Washington DC All-Hazards) is a NOAA Weather Radio station that serves Washington, DC and its immediate metropolitan area. Its signal can be reliably heard in the entirety of the District of Columbia, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, Prince George's County, Maryland, and Montgomery County, Maryland. Additionally, the signal covers most of Fairfax County, Virginia, southeastern Loudoun County, Virginia, southern Howard County, Maryland, and northern Charles County, Maryland.

Locations north and east of the District may get a better signal from KEC83 in Baltimore, while those living to the west and south may find the same for KHB36 in Manassas. Both stations operate with 1000 watts of power, while WNG736 only uses 300 watts.
