Cold Advisory for Newborn Livestock Experiment

The National Weather Service in Bismarck will again participate in the Experimental

Cold Advisory for Newborn Livestock system this season.


The Cold Advisory for Newborn Livestock (CANL) system is designed to indicate

weather conditions that are potentially dangerous to newborn livestock. The

experiment will run through May. Offices serving parts of North Dakota, South

Dakota, and Montana are participating.


The system takes into account individual weather parameters like temperature,

wind speed, wind chill, relative humidity, cloud cover, and precipitation, and

categorizes them into easy to interpret colored graphics.
