National Weather Service Reworks Flooding Terms
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Assistant Chief Keith Grierson
November 7, 2021

As of last week the National Weather Service (NWS) will implement a reformat and consolidation of our flood products.

Specifically,

· NWS Flash Flood Watches and Flood Watches will be consolidated into one Flood Watch product for expected heavy rainfall events. Examples of this change are included in the attached document.

· In the rare event that a dam (or levee) failure or significant ice jam flooding may occur, we will continue to issue the Flash Flood Watch product.

· Previous Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisories and Small Stream Flood Advisories will now be called just Flood Advisories. Again refer to the attached document for examples.

· Flood products will all now use the bulleted WHAT... WHERE... WHEN... IMPACTS... format, similar to how other NWS warnings look.
