The left hand menu on all of the National Weather Service Offices throughout the Central Region will be changing through the first part of July. The changes have already been completed at the NWS Springfield, MO site. The changes were motivated by the desire to respond to concerns raised by our users and to better serve the public.
We have received a substantial number of requests to reorganize the menu into a design that is more streamlined and one that is uniform across office boundaries. The most common user concern raised is associated with difficulty finding the information a visitor is seeking because the home page menu choices are too numerous. Therefore, our first step in responding to that concern was to simplify the left hand menu.
For those users who frequent a particular office's web site and are already accustomed to its choices, we understand the changes made may represent a significant change requiring renewed familiarization. We will be glad to help you if you need assistance in finding a certain menu item that may have changed. We are confident the more streamlined design will ultimately serve your needs more effectively.
The National Weather Service is comprised of dedicated professionals committed to providing the best environmental information available anywhere. We are on duty nationwide 24/7/365; and we're dedicated to our mission because we know there are days when lives depend on us. We appreciate your continued support as we explore ways to improve our service to you.
Most of the links that are no longer on the left hand menu can be found under the Additional Info Header under "Other Useful Links".
