Winter Headlines

Posted: 31 Jan 2018 05:33 AM

The featured calendar displays the number of NWS issued winter weather headlines. For this context and plot, these are limited to a set of four common winter alerts (Winter Storm Warning, Blizzard Warning, Wind Chill Advisory, and Winter Weather Advisory). The calendar displays the number of events issued by all NWS offices, where an event is defined by a single product issuance over some area. For example, a single winter storm warning for 20 counties in Iowa issued by NWS Des Moines would count as one in this plot. The calendar shows that the winter season has been the most active since the end of December. You can generate this plot for your own period, alerts, and office of your choice on this website.

Good = 5
Bad = 0
