Non-precipitation phenomena such as high wind, frost, heat, wind
chill, and dense fog also affect Kentucky and Southern Indiana,
and can be just as hazardous as rain or snow, or thunderstorms or
Like winter weather events, non-precipitation events often
cover large geographic areas, and thus advisories and warnings are
issued for relatively large portions of states, rather than
individual counties or small groups of counties. Non-precipitation
watches are generally not issued.
Non-precipitation advisories and warnings are typically issued
for the first period of the seven day forecast, and can be
extended to 24 hours if the event is expected to continue.
Advisories are reissued whenever there is a change to the timing,
areal extent, or expected weather conditions. The advisory
provides important details about the location affected, potential
impacts, scientific basis for the advisory, and precautionary
Non Precipitation products are issued as needed. The
first section may contain an optional headline and synoptic
forecast discussion of the weather event. Thereafter, the
product is segmented, with each section having a headline and specific
hazards that can be expected. The order of segments will
be: cancellations, warnings, advisories, and watches.
