NOAA’s National Weather Service uses a four-tier approach to alert the public for the potential for severe weather or high fire danger. This four-tier approach consists of outlooks, advisories, watches and warnings.
1) Winter Storm Outlook…
A winter storm outlook is issued when conditions are favorable for hazardous winter weather to develop within the next 3 to 7 days. It is intended for those groups that require considerable lead time to prepare for the event.
ACTION: Stay tuned to local media or monitor NOAA Weather Radio for updates. Evaluate your emergency action plan and the resources you have in your home, car or work place to deal with a winter storm.
2) Winter Storm Watch…
A winter storm watch is issued when the risk of hazardous winter weather has increased, but occurrence, location and timing is still somewhat uncertain. Generally, a watch is issued when there is a significant threat of severe winter weather in the next 12 to 48 hours.
ACTION: You should prepare now and ensure that all emergency plans and resources are in place.
Note: Winter Storm Watches may be upgraded to Winter Storm Warnings, if conditions warrant.
3) Winter Weather Advisory…Continue Reading ...
Winter weather advisories are issued for less serious winter weather conditions that are occurring, or have a high likelihood of occurring. These products are used for winter weather situations that are less severe than a Warning, but will cause significant inconvenience. These situations should not be life threatening, damage is usually localized and the main danger is hazardous travel.
Note: This advisory may be upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning if conditions warrant.
OLYMPIA – Washington’s razor clam season will get off to an early start this year with an evening dig at Twin Harbors beach set for Sept. 19-23.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the dig after marine toxin tests confirmed the clams on those two beaches are safe to eat.
Although the department is still developing the digging schedule for fall, state fishery managers saw no reason to delay approving a dig at Twin Harbors, said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager.
“We have an huge number of clams available for harvest this season – particularly at Twin Harbors,” Ayres said. “There are only so many good clamming tides during the year, and we decided there was no time to waste in getting started.”
Twin Harbors Beach extends from the mouth of Willapa Bay north to the south jetty at the mouth of Grays Harbor. Clam digging will be allowed there between noon and midnight, although Ayres suggests arriving at the beach one to two hours before evening low tide for best results.Continue Reading ...
