Examples of best practice in communicating weather information

Source(s):  World Meteorological Organization (WMO)

PWS-17; WMO/TD No. 1409:

This document presents some examples of how to effectively communicate weather information across a range of services delivery methods and information types. Examples include graphical presentations on the Internet and television, good use of icons and other weather symbols, and a case of effective verbal communication on radio. The examples are real. They have been chosen because they encompass one or more elements of effective communication, such as clear language, or simple but effective use of graphics. Users of this document are invited to examine the examples and use them as guidance or inspiration when designing services and planning how to communicate them.

This document is intended for use primarily by professional meteorologists involved in the preparation and delivery of weather and climate information. This includes operational forecasters as well as those who plan and manage the delivery of services.
