NSSL to Forecast New Watches and Warnings


In some places talking about the weather is considered mundane, but in Oklahoma as we approach spring’s severe storm season, understanding the weather can be a matter of life and death.

The NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL), located in Norman’s National Weather Center, is working to modernize our country’s 50-year-old system of severe weather “watches” and “warnings” through a program called FACETs.

Using technological advancements and social science, they are creating the next-generation severe weather watch and warning framework to be modern, flexible and designed to communicate clear and simple hazardous weather information to the public.
