This effort is a subset of the overall Hazard Simplification (Haz Simp) project. As part of the move towards Impact-Based Decision Support Services (IDSS), the Haz Simp project supports the NWS Weather-Ready Nation Roadmap Strategic Plan Goal. Improve weather decision services for events that threaten lives and livelihood For the NPW program, the current advisories for Dense Smoke, Dense Fog, Ashfall, and Blowing Dust will be consolidated into a Visibility Advisory. The current Extreme Cold Watch and Wind Chill Watch will be consolidated into a Cold Weather Watch. The current Extreme Cold Warning and Wind Chill Warning will be consolidated into a Cold Weather Warning. To enable consistency across cold weather products, the Wind Chill Advisory will be transitioned into a Cold Weather Advisory. The current High Wind Watch and High Wind Warning will transition to a Wind Watch and Wind Warning. The current Excessive Heat Watch and Excessive Heat Warning will transition to a Heat Watch and Heat Warning. In addition to the above consolidations, all current and proposed products would be reformatted into a "What", "Where", "When", "Additional Details" and "Impacts" information ordering format.
