Proposed Improvements to the NHC Public Advisory (Text)


Customer feedback suggests that there is a need for a more user-friendly format to the NHC Public Advisory. Users have expressed difficulty in finding pertinent warning, storm and impact information in the public advisory, especially when there is a significant amount of information to convey. The need for a format that separates certain sections of the advisory is most evident when a tropical storm or hurricane is close to making landfall.

NHC proposes changes to the basic format of the public advisory, including changes to the storm information summary, adding section headers, and providing more structure to the watches and warnings section.

The Katrina and Linda examples below show the storm summary information at the beginning of the product. The example for Dolly places the storm information in its current location near the end of the product while retaining watch/warning information at the beginning.

NHC requests your comments about the proposed changes and you may send us an email with your feedback.
