Services Branch

Subject: Soliciting Comments through August 31, 2015, on
Change to

P-VTEC Line(s)and Associated Headline(s)when Upgrading from

Winter Storm Warning or Lake Effect Snow Warning to Ice Storm

and Blizzard Warning

NWS is accepting comments on changing some of the P-VTEC
line(s) and

headlines in the Winter Weather Watches, Warnings and
Advisories product

(WSW). The proposed change is summarized below:

When a Winter Storm Warning or Lake Effect Snow Warning is
upgraded to an

Ice Storm or Blizzard Warning for the same geographical area,
the WSW

segment will now contain only one headline and two P-VTEC
lines. The

headline will list the new warning only. The first P-VTEC
line will use

the UPG action code to show the old Winter Storm or Lake
Effect Snow

Warning being upgraded. The second P-VTEC line will use the
NEW action

code to start the new Ice Storm or Blizzard Warning.

This proposed change is expected to more accurately reflect
and more

effectively relay automated communication of winter weather
warning information.

For example, under current policy, the following P-VTEC lines
and

headlines are disseminated when a Winter Storm Warning is
changed to an

Ice Storm Warning for the same geographical area:

/O.CAN.KOUN.WS.W.0005.000000T0000Z-010129T0000Z/ (P-VTEC line
1)

/O.NEW.KOUN.IS.W.0005.010128T1030Z-010129T0000Z/ (P-VTEC line
2)

...Winter Storm Warning is Cancelled...

...Ice Storm Warning in Effect Until 6pm CST Sunday...

Under the proposed change, the following P-VTEC lines and
headline will be disseminated when a Winter Storm Warning is
upgraded to an Ice Storm

Warning for the same geographical area:

/O.UPG.KOUN.WS.W.0005.000000T0000Z-010129T0000Z/ (P-VTEC line
1)

/O.NEW.KOUN.IS.W.0005.010128T1030Z-010129T0000Z/ (P-VTEC line
2)

...Ice Storm Warning in Effect Until 6pm CST Sunday...

The example shown above would be identical when upgrading
from a Winter

Storm Warning to a Blizzard Warning and when upgrading from a
Lake Effect

Snow Warning to an Ice Storm or Blizzard Warning. No other
changes are

being proposed to the WSW product at this time.

Acting Chief, Forecast Services Division

Subject: Summer Boating Safety this Summer

Many people go boating during the summer. When you’re out on
the

water, here are some things to keep in mind:

-If you start to see clouds develop vertically, a
thunderstorm

may be forming. Dont wait! Head for port and safe shelter

immediately.

-When you are out on the water, remember: look but dont
touch.

Do not touch, handle, feed, or ride on marine animals.

-Avoid contact with coral reefs. Make sure your anchor is
clear

of corals and dont touch them when diving.

-Carry in, carry out. This rule is not only for campsites and

hiking trails. When you are out on the water or on the beach,

make sure you leave no trace. Help fight the global marine
debris

problem.

-Hazardous surf, pollution, red tides, jellyfish, and sharks
are

just a few of the potential dangers in our coastal waters.
Know

before you go. Find out local conditions and reports before

entering the ocean.

-Lightning can strike from 10 miles away. Fishermen and
boaters

can best protect themselves against lightning injury or death
by

monitoring the weather and postponing outdoor activities when

thunderstorms are in the forecast.

-If people can hear thunder, they are in danger of being
struck

by lightning.

-Register your boats safety beacon with NOAA to help
rescuers

find you faster in an emergency. If you do not have a safety

beacon, get one. It may save your life!
