MMM In the News

New NWS forecast graphics, shown here, draw on NCAR research.
The online graphics being introduced by the NWS this summer draw on research by a team of risk communication experts at NCAR who focus on how to better convey forecast information visually. Beginning July 7 the NWS will use the redesigned icons for all weather.gov local forecasts. These point-and-click forecasts influence weather-related decisions by people across the country, drawing 2 to 4 million unique web views daily. The new icons will feature split images and color-coded boxes to better communicate the existence, timing, and potential severity of upcoming weather threats.
