give us.

Air Quality Needs
 On a typical day, a NWS office is asked
about numerous weather and sky events.
 We are expected to be experts in many
areas – even if we aren’t.
 The better information we have and the
better training we get, the better we will
serve your community.
National Weather Service Huntsville
Why Local and not National?
 You can do both.
 All weather is local.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH ALABAMA AND PORTIONS
OF SOUTHERN MIDDLE TENNESSEE.
.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...
ANOTHER BOUT WITH SMOKE AND HAZE IS EXPECTED TODAY...WITH
VISIBILITY DROPPING FROM 2 TO 4 MILES FOR A PERIOD THIS MORNING.
PERSONS WITH HEALTH CONDITIONS SENSITIVE TO SMOKE SHOULD TAKE
APPROPRIATE MEASURES TO PROTECT THEMSELVES.
THE FIRE DANGER WILL BE SOMEWHAT LESS THAN IN RECENT DAYS DUE TO
LIGHTER WIND FLOW AND A SLIGHT INCREASE IN MOISTURE.

Parting Thoughts
 We cannot toss data to forecasters without
training.
– At best, the information will not be used
– At worst, the information will be misused
 We want to serve the public better then we
do today. In the area of air quality, we
cannot do it without your help.
