Winter Weather Advisory - Types


Because of the changes with the 2008-09 winter storm season, several varieties have been noted throughout the US.

  • Winter Weather Advisory for Snow (Replaced the Heavy Snow Warning)
  • Winter Weather Advisory for Snow and Blowing Snow (Replaced Blowing Snow Advisory, when conditions are not close enough to blizzard to warrant a Winter Storm Warning for Heavy Snow and Blowing Snow)
  • Winter Weather Advisory for Sleet (Replaced the Sleet Advisory)
  • Winter Weather Advisory for Sleet and Freezing Rain (or for Freezing Rain and Sleet) (When both the criteria for a WWA for sleet and an Freezing Rain Adviosry are met)
  • Winter Weather Advisory for Freezing Rain (When the criteria for a Freezing Rain Advisory are met, and some other mentionable winter weather hazards prevent the issuance of a pure freezing rain product)
  • Winter Storm Watch is given when a winter storm is likely to occur.
  • Winter Storm Warning is given when a winter storm is moving into the area and that the public should take protective action.
  • Also, the generic term, Winter Weather Advisory, may be used on its own to indicate that all three winter precipitation types are expected in moderate amounts.

Famous quotes containing the word types:

    The American man is a very simple and cheap mechanism. The American woman I find a complicated and expensive one. Contrasts of feminine types are possible. I am not absolutely sure that there is more than one American man.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    The rank and file have let their servants become their masters and dictators.... Provision should be made in all union constitutions for the recall of leaders. Big salaries should not be paid. Career hunters should be driven out, as well as leaders who use labor for political ends. These types are menaces to the advancement of labor.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)

    Our major universities are now stuck with an army of pedestrian, toadying careerists, Fifties types who wave around Sixties banners to conceal their record of ruthless, beaverlike tunneling to the top.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)
