Severe Thunderstorm Warning (svr), Tornado Warning (tor) and
severe weather statement (svs) products will be stratified into
categories distinguishing extreme cases from base convective
warnings. Additional enhanced wording will be included to convey
information about associated impacts, specific hazards expected,
and recommended actions, both within the bullet statements and as
part of the tag line codes.

Additional information and product examples are online at:

A product description document (pdd) outlining the products is
online at:

Based on demonstration results, the impact based warnings are
being considered for implementation on a National basis.

Please submit comments on the proposed National implementation
to:

After the experimental period is completed and the comment period
closes, NWS will evaluate all comments to determine whether to
implement the experimental impact based warnings as operational
products.
