Proposal to Change High Surf Advisory to a Plain Language Headline
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
The National Weather Service (NWS) is considering a major change to the Watch, Warning, and Advisory (WWA) system (for information on this and other proposed changes see https://www.weather.gov/hazardsimplification/). The proposed new system would remove the terms "Advisory," "Special Weather Statement," and "NOWcast" as headlines, and streamline all sub-Watch and sub-Warning information into a single, plain- language Statement. The NWS is soliciting specific feedback on the proposal to change the “High Surf Advisory” to a plain-language headline “Statement.” Under the proposal, Valid Time Event Code (VTEC) will still be available in the message for partners to parse out information. The VTEC will change from SU.Y to SU.S.
