No More Heat Advisories.
Starting no earlier than 2024, the National Weather Service will no longer issue an advisory. This includes heat, winter, etc.
How will heat index temperatures at or above 105° and the danger associated with it be communicated? Special weather statement or warning? We just don't know yet.
As you know, I'm a BIG fan of "less is more". Simplify! I applaud their thinking, but think they may have missed the mark a bit here. When it comes to advisories, we get them in Arkansas. We understand them. I have never heard anyone confused over a winter weather advisory, a wind advisory, and especially a heat advisory.
Again, this will not happen until at least 2024. I sincerely hope the National Weather Service leadership at the national level will change their mind.
