NWS Survey Seeks Data on Weather Advisories

NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS) is seeking feedback in a survey gauging how decision-makers, such as transportation managers, use NWS watches, warnings and advisories.

The survey is part of the NWS Hazard Simplification Project to analyze the use and effectiveness of NWS watches, warnings and advisories and evaluate possible alternatives to these terms.

The survey will assess the extent to which organizations at all levels and in various sectors have formally incorporated such weather-related notices into their decision-making processes via policies, protocols, laws and similar procedures. For instance, the survey will determine if transportation agencies or companies have a written policy that determines specific processes and pro­cedures if NWS issues a blizzard watch.

The survey closes after Oct. 31. To take it, click here.
