The FACETs Project

Loading the player loading

Forecasting a Continuum of Environmental Threats (FACETs) is a complete reinvention of the current watches and warnings the National Weather Service currently uses. FACETs is a proposed next-generation severe weather watch and warning framework that is modern, flexible, and designed to communicate clear and simple hazardous weather information to serve the public. FACETs supports NOAA's Weather-Ready Nation initiative to build community resilience in the face of increasing vulnerability to extreme weather and water events.

The FACETs integration model

The unified vision, framework and concept through FACETs will guide warning research and development work towards an effective, future warning paradigm.
