NWS Tropical Product & Service Changes webinar

The National Weather Service will be making key improvements to its tropical cyclone products and services for the 2017 hurricane season that will affect users. Some of the changes include the introduction of tropical cyclone storm surge watches and warnings, changes to the tropical cyclone graphics available from the National Hurricane Center and Central Pacific Hurricane Center, and anticipated changes to the criteria for issuing tropical cyclone watches and warnings to include certain land-threatening disturbances that are not yet tropical cyclones (currently under final review).

To ensure users are aware of the upcoming changes, the NWS Tropical Services Program held a webinar on March 23, 2017. Click here for the presentation slides.
