AUSTIN (KXAN) — We’ve already warned you that the National Weather Service will be discontinuing Advisory products within the next few years, but before that happens they’re helping to simplify some of the existing products.
The National Weather Service will be consolidating several products and reformatting products as well.
Existing Flash Flood Watches and Flood Watches will be consolidated into a simple “Flood Watch.”
Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory, Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory, Small Stream Flood Advisory and Hydrologic Advisory will all be simplified to just “Flood Advisory.”
Several other flood products will gain more information and will display this information in a reformatted way. This will add information about What, Where, When, Impacts and Additional Details to the existing products. The products to receive the update include Flood Watches, Flood Warnings and Flood Advisories.
