GUIDELINES ON EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS AND APPLICATION OF NOWCASTING AND WARNING OPERATIONS
These guidelines are prepared with focus on the role of NMHSs in reducing the impact of disasters. The development of early warning systems is seen as part of the operational responsibility of NMHSs. The essential elements of such systems and in particular, forecasting, formatting, presenting and communicating of warnings of severe weather, and the accompanying public education and capacity building of NMHSs are given special attention in these guidelines. The application of nowcasting in warning operations and examples of nowcasting systems used by various NMHSs complete the document.
