National Weather Service describes process of issuing weather watches, warnings
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The National Weather Service is the agency that determines when weather advisories, watches or warnings should be issued.
On Friday morning, CBS 58 spoke with lead forecaster Andy Boxell from NWS to get more insight into the decision making.
“We take a look at our expected winds and low temperatures across the area and from that we of course can calculate the expected wind chill,” he said.
Boxell said although it was a mild start to winter, this won't be the last of the cold weather and snow.
“This morning is certainly quite chilly,” Boxell said. “Next week looks brutal out there.”
