Proposed Fire Weather Headline Change and Reformat
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
All Forecast Regions
The National Weather Service (NWS) is collecting comments through March XX, 2020 on proposed changes to Fire Weather products. This proposal is part of a broader Hazard Simplification effort in which NWS text products are moving to “What, Where, When, Impacts” bulleted format. NWS is also exploring ways to enhance language during exceptional weather events. NWS currently issues Fire Weather Watches and Red Flag Warnings. In some situations the fire weather conditions are so exceptional they may need to be called out at a higher level. In line with this need, NWS is currently collecting comments on potential options as follows: Option A: Red Flag Emergency Option B: Extreme Red Flag Warning Option C: Red Flag Warning with "Particularly Dangerous Situation" language in the message In addition, NWS has already reformatted the winter (e.g. Winter Storm Watch), non-precipitation (e.g. Dense Fog Advisory), and marine (e.g. Gale Warning) products into a bulleted "What", "Where", "When", "Impacts" format. For consistency, we now propose that fire weather products also adopt this format.
