All Forecast Regions
NWS Central Region offices have issued Special Marine Warnings (SMW) and Marine Weather Statements (MWS) with tags for hail and wind as an operational product format since 2010. The purpose of this PDD is to change how these hail and wind tags are encoded to bring them into conformity with how they are done within the Severe Thunderstorm Warning product, and to introduce a new tag to help users better identify the potential threat from waterspouts.
