PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY
927 AM CST TUE FEB 3 2015

...COMPUTER SYSTEM UPGRADE SLATED FOR NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
PADUCAH TOMORROW...

AS PART OF A NATION-WIDE PLAN TO IMPROVE SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC,
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IS UPGRADING THE OPERATIONAL SYSTEMS
AT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICES.

STARTING TOMORROW MORNING, FEBRUARY 4TH, THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE IN PADUCAH, KENTUCKY WILL BE UPGRADING TO A NEW SYSTEM CALLED
AWIPS (OR ADVANCED WEATHER INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEM) 2.

WHILE THIS UPGRADE IS TAKING PLACE, THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
IN LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY WILL ASSIST US IN PROVIDING BASIC FORECAST
AND WARNING SERVICE TO OUR CUSTOMERS AND PARTNERS.

GIVEN THE COMPLEX INTERACTION AMONG THE COMPUTER SYSTEMS WE USE,
THERE MAY BE BRIEF INTERRUPTIONS OR CHANGES IN FORMAT OF NOAA
WEATHER RADIO, WEB SERVICES, AND OTHER PRODUCTS THAT WE NORMALLY
ISSUE.

OUR OFFICE WILL STILL BE ON-LINE THROUGH NORMAL COMMUNICATION
CHANNELS AND SOCIAL MEDIA DURING THIS UPGRADE, SO WE WILL BE
AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

WE ANTICIPATE RESUMING ALL FORECAST AND WARNING SERVICE BEFORE THE
CLOSE OF THE DAY TOMORROW, BUT ASK FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND
PATIENCE WHILE WE FINISH AND TEST OUT THE NEW COMPONENTS OF THE
COMPUTER SYSTEM.
