Reinstatement of Lake Effect Snow Warning and Addition of “Impacts” Bullet in Winter Product Suite
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
All Forecast Regions
Effective Tuesday October 1, 2019, the National Weather Service (NWS) will reinstate the Lake Effect Snow Warning product. An “Impacts” bullet will also be added to all winter weather products as part of the Haz Simp reformatting effort. During the 2017-2018 winter season, NWS consolidated Lake Effect Snow Warning into the Winter Storm Warning for all Weather Forecast Offices (WFO). In response to partner concerns and feedback following this change in some portions of the country, Lake Effect Snow Warning will be reinstated as a separate product. Use of the reinstated product will be optional based on assessed user need and WFOs will still have the capability to issue Winter Storm Warnings for Lake Effect Snow.
