The National Weather Service (NWS) has launched a demonstration project to explore the impact based convective warning experimental product to better communicate threats to partners and constituents. Due to positive feedback, the NWS has expanded the demonstration project to include 13 Southern Region Coastal Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) for a total of 80 WFOs participating nationwide beginning October 1, 2015. The goals in this process continue to focus on providing more information to media and EM partners, facilitating improved public response and decision making; and meeting societal needs in the most lifethreatening weather events.
