...Changes to hazardous weather outlook issuance...

Effective February 1, 2015, the National Weather Service in Birmingham will change the frequency of issuance of the hazardous weather outlook (hwo). Instead of issuing the product routinely 3 times a day, we will now issue one routine product daily, with additional issuances on an as needed basis if there is a change in the forecast of hazardous conditions. A complete description of the hwo product can be found in the NWS directives online at http://www.NWS.NOAA.Gov/directives/sym/pd01005017curr.Pdf.
