Storm prediction center watches better meet user needs

Storm Prediction Center Watches Better Meet User Needs

  • Realign information in watch product suite

    • Hazard info collocated with routing info

      • Public (SEL), Aviation (SAW), Outline (WOU), Discussion (MD), Probabilities (WPP)

    • Aviation information in aviation products

    • Meteorological discussion moved to MD

    • Create computer friendly products more amenable to parsing and partner redistribution

  • Partner ideas are critical to success
