O knihe

This article describes the United States National Weather Service (NWS) severe weather terminology. The NWS defines precise meanings for nearly all its weather terms. This article describes NWS terminology and related NWS weather scales. Some terms may be specific to certain cities or regions. The NWS divides hazardous weather conditions into three types of hazardous weather/hydrologic events: 1. Severe local storms - These are short-fused, small scale hazardous weather or hydrologic events produced by thunderstorms, including large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes, and flash floods. 2. Winter storms - These are weather hazards associated with freezing or frozen precipitation (freezing rain, sleet, snow) or combined effects of winter precipitation and strong winds. 3. Other hazards - Weather hazards not directly associated with thunderstorms or winter storms including extreme heat or cold, dense fog, high winds, river flooding, and lakeshore flooding.
