What is changing?

On April 24th, several modifications will be seen on our NWS web pages, particularly within the "Point and Click" forecast pages (current example). Note that this is a third postponement from the original implementation date and additional delays cannot be ruled out.

The new changes can be found here: 

The "What's New?" tab in the previous link will show you a list of pages that will look different, and hopefully be easier to process and navigate.  We encourage you to take a look around for yourself, but a few of the more noticeable changes include the following.

1. A new "hourly forecast" tab below the graphical weather forecast/icons

2. Enhancements to the Hourly Weather Graph -- separate thumbnails beside each other for either Graphical or Tabular data.

3. Radar overlay on the clickable map feature.

How will this impact me?

Expect little impact on everyone unless you have any of these pages bookmarked. If this is the case, be mindful that the pages will change on April 24 and you will need to update those bookmarks.  If you have any further questions, give us a call at (850) 942-8833 (option 9 to ring through).
