STATE FORECAST PRODUCTS

 

PRODUCT: State (SFP) Forecast Products

REFERENCE: WSOM Chapters C-10; C-11; C-21; C-45

ISSUED BY: Authorized WFOs

PURPOSE: Several NWS products are issued on a "State" basis, i.e., there is the combined State and Extended 1-5 Day Forecast for TN. For large states such as TX, the state is divided into three parts (North, West, and South with each part considered a "State"). As MAR continues, some states are losing portions of their former "State" area (northwest Arkansas is now part of NWSO Tulsa's area, etc.).

CHANGES: none
