Interactive Display

The interactive map shows both Center Weather Advisories (CWAs) and Meteorological Impact Statements (MISs). The CWAs show up as polygons for the hazard area. The outlines of the polygons are black to make them distinctive from SIGMETs. The polygons are filled based on hazard type (See Fig. 1).

MIS are display as yellow circles in the middle of the ARTCC region. Only regions with a valid MIS are shown.

Each polygon or circle is clickable to obtain the text of the advisory or statement.
