Introduction

SNOW is an AWIPS application suite which continuously monitors surface observations for winter weather hazards. It automatically alerts the forecasters whenever such conditions are detected. SNOW provides capabilities to display observed winter weather threats in ways that help forecasters focus on what they consider most important. What's new: In OB8.3, The “snowflake” icon in Guardian will be enhanced to list the worst-case values and threat levels which determine the icon’s color. This will allow users at a glance to find conditions in their area such as lowest visibility and highest wind speed.
