Graphical "Weather Story" of the Day

On Monday, June 25, 2007, NOAA’s National Weather Service, Central Region Forecast Offices (WFOs) began providing a new service online - the "Weather Story."  The service goal is to provide a snap shot of the most important weather feature affecting the WFO’s local forecast area.

The "Weather Story" is a graphical presentation of the most significant weather feature expected to impact the local area for the next seven days.  The "Weather Story" can depict weather threats such as thunderstorms, heavy rainfall, strong winds, fire dangers, and excessive heat; or, highlight a pleasant stretch of weather.

The graphical "Weather Story" will be accessed on the local WFO web site at the tag found on the upper right corner of the "Top News of the Day" section of each Forecast Office web site.

The service is available on all NWS Central Region Forecast Office web sites and updated by 8 A.M. local time each day.

The local NWS Forecast Office web site may be accessed at:
