Fire and Ice...
« on: November 28, 2006, 10:18:28 PM »
Here's this evening's NWS watches, warnings & advisories map for So. Cal.

I wonder how often Freeze Watches and Red Flag Warnings show up adjacent on the map.

I'll trade you. This was posted for my area today:

ICE STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 6 AM CST
THURSDAY...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PLEASANT HILL HAS ISSUED AN ICE
STORM WARNING...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 6 AM CST
THURSDAY. THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT.

A STRONG COLD FRONT HAS MOVED SOUTH OF A PAOLA TO CARROLLTON LINE
EARLY THIS MORNING...CAUSING TEMPERATURES TO DROP INTO THE UPPER 40S
WITHIN MINUTES AFTER THE FRONT PASSED BY. TEMPERATURES WILL EVENTUALLY
FALL INTO THE UPPER 20S TO LOWER 30S BY THIS AFTERNOON. PERIODS OF RAIN
IN THE MORNING IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE TO FREEZING RAIN THIS AFTERNOON...AND
CONTINUE THROUGH THIS EVENING. THIS WILL LEAD TO SIGNIFICANT ICE
ACCUMULATIONS OF ONE QUARTER TO ONE HALF INCH BY THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.

AN ICE STORM WARNING MEANS SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF ICE ACCUMULATIONS
WILL MAKE TRAVEL DANGEROUS OR IMPOSSIBLE. TRAVEL IS STRONGLY
DISCOURAGED. COMMERCE WILL LIKELY BE SEVERELY IMPACTED. IF YOU
MUST TRAVEL...KEEP AN EXTRA FLASHLIGHT...FOOD...AND WATER IN YOUR
VEHICLE IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY. ICE ACCUMULATIONS AND WINDS WILL
LIKELY LEAD TO SNAPPED POWER LINES AND FALLING TREE BRANCHES THAT
ADD TO THE DANGER.

Since when does the NWS care about commerce?

Indeed, they are.  I had forgotten about that.  But that really makes a lot of sense.  Guess there wasn't enough room for NOAA and the NWS under the Department of the Interior...
