I thought some of you all may be interested in this NWS proposal that they are requesting feedback on. I just came across it.


It appears they are considering a change in how weather products are communicated to the public. You have an opportunity to complete a survey and provide feedback.

Personally I like the current system using advisories and warnings - but I also understand them. I would possibly change one area which causes confusion. When a Winter Storm Watch is issued followed by a Winter Weather Advisory, it is an upgrade but many look at that as not an upgrade. Perhaps call the watch a Winter Weather Watch, then follow up with either a WWA or Winter Storm Warning depending upon criteria. My 2 cents ...
