That Winter Advisory Means What?

facebook

 

Did you ever wonder what the National Weather Service means when they give us a warning, advisory and or a watch?  Well now I know, thanks to Dan, my co-worker.Yesterday when we had the Winter Weather Advisory put upon us here in the state of New Jersey I said on the air..”What’s the difference between a Winter Weather Advisory and a Winter Weather Warning.”  He sent me all the information I’d need to know, thanks Dan and The National Weather Service.

Here it its from the National Weather Service:

Winter Storm Warning

This is issued by the National Weather Service when a winter storm is producing or is forecast to produce heavy snow or a significant ice accumulations.  This criteria for this warning can vary from place to place.

Winter Storm Watch

This is issued by the National Weather Service when there is a potential for heavy snow or significant ice accumulations. Usually at least 24 – 36 hours in advance.  This criteria could vary from place to place.

Winter Weather Advisory

This is issued by the National Weather Service when a low pressure system produces a combination of winter weather–snow, freezing rain, sleet, etc.  that presents a hazard, but does not meet a warning criteria.
