Plot Description:

This chart shows the number of VTEC phenomena and significance combinations issued by a NWS Forecast Office for a given year. Please note that not all current-day VTEC products were started in 2005, some came a few years later. So numbers in 2005 are not directly comparable to 2015. Here is a handy chart with more details on VTEC and codes used in this graphic.
